Located in eastern Guangdong Province, Chaozhou has been known as hometown to overseas Chinese. It was built in the Song Dynast (960-1279). The ancient gate and some of the city walls are well preserved. Many house and temples at the southern gate were built in the Ming and Qing (1368-1911) dynasties.
In downtown Chaozhou, there are historical sites such as Kaiyuan Temple, cliff carvings on Mt. Gourd, the Phoenix Pagoda, and the Temple to Han Yu. The traditional music, opera, and arts and crafts of Chaozhou have influenced those in Taiwan and the Southeast Asian countries.
