The Yamen in Neixiang was built originally in the Yuan Dynasty and has a history of more than 700 years. It was destroyed and rebuilt several times and the existing architecture mostly dates to the Qing Dynasty when it was built by Zhang Bingtao in 1882: it took three years to build. It has an area of 20,000 m² and there are more than 260 existing rooms. It is currently China's best preserved feudal county government office.
