CNN reports that the centuries-old mansions of Fuzhou's Sanfang Qixiang are the imperial China equivalent of Beverly Hills.

Formed in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) before flourishing in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368-1911), Sanfang Qixiang -- which translates to "three lanes and seven alleys" in English -- was once the most affluent neighborhood in the city and home to more than 400 rich, famous and powerful residents.
