Liangcun village in Yuebi township, 6 kilometers southeast of the Ancient City of Pingyao, is a famous historical and cultural village in China and a provincial 3A-rated rural tourist attraction in Shanxi province. 

The village was first formed in the Xia (c.21st century-16th century BC) and Shang (c.16th century-11th century BC) dynasties. It has undergone continuous development from the Sui (581-618) and Tang (618-907) dynasties to China's modern period. 

It consists of one street and five ancient castles and is the most typical existing rural ancient fortress group in China. Its layout resembles a phoenix spreading its wings, earning it the name "Phoenix Ancient Castle."
