Fujian Tulou by Chi sin Gweilo on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
I recently had the fortune to go to Xiamen, and while there visited the Tulous, out of town. These date from the Qing and Ming Dynasties, and are 3 or 4 story tall circular or rectangular buildings, with the people living on the inside of the fortified outer wall. Essentially a cross between a castle and a village.
