The Hakka have inhabited Yongding and its neighbouring villages for hundreds of years. During the Jin dynasty (AD 265-314) the Hakka people of Northwest China began a gradual migration south to escape persecution and famine. They eventually settled in Fujian, Jiangxi and Guangdong, where they built the tulou to protect themselves from bandits and wild animals. (Lonely Planet - China).

Earthen houses represent a vernacular architecture specific to Jiangxi, Fujian and Guangdong provinces following the flow of the Hakka people from central China to the South. As most Hakka resided in mountains, communal houses made of compacted earth were built to provide protection against bandits and wild animals. The older examples of this style of construction consist of interior buildings enclosed by huge peripheral ones holding hundreds of rooms and dwellers. With all the halls, storehouses, wells and bedrooms inside, the huge towerlike building functions almost as a small fortified city. Earthen houses are made of earth, stone, bamboo and wood, all readily available materials. After constructing the walls with rammed earth, branches, strips of wood and bamboo chips were laid in the wall as "bones" to reinforce it. The end result is a well lit, well-ventilated, windproof, quakeproof building that is warm in winter and cool in summer.


Over twenty thousand of these houses still stand today, ten of which are over 600 years old. The oldest one, “Fu Xing Lou” in Hu Le town, was constructed over 1,200 years ago and is regarded as a “living fossil” of the construction style of central China. The tulou located at the border of Yongding County and Nanjing County is the perfect example of this style of construction and it is here that there are most earthen houses. Most of the nominated properties are located in this area.

六堆沿革:公元一七二一年,朱一貴之亂,威脅到高屏客家六人聚落的生存時,各地士紳義勇集合於內埔媽祖廟聚議,成立六隊﹝堆﹞鄉團;中堆﹝竹田鄉﹞、先鋒隊﹝萬巒﹞、後堆﹝內埔鄉﹞、前堆﹝麟洛、長治﹞、左堆﹝佳冬、新埤﹞、右堆﹝ 美濃、高樹﹞、保衛家鄉,抵禦外侮。這一次的團結衛鄉,凱旋而歸。由於平亂有功,獲清廷救建忠義亭,以後即成了以忠義亭(祠)為精神堡壘的高屏兩縣客家村庄的總稱。目前六堆鄉鎮橫跨高雄、屏東兩縣,在清朝時代皆隸屬鳳山縣,日據時期也同屬阿猴廳或高雄州,光復後美濃改隸高雄縣外,餘則隸屬屏東縣,所以六堆鄉土非行政區域,而是同一族系之精神的結合體。
