Its red external wall is obvious among the green landscape. It is also called Jiangxi (one province of China) Assembly Hall, built by Jiangxi businessmen in Fenghuang during the year 20 of the reign of Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty (year 1755).

Taking an area of over 4000 square meters, Longevity Palace was a marvelous and delicately- designed ancient Chinese building complex, composed of more than 20 halls, mansions, chambers, pavilions and an ancient stage. During the past hundreds of years, some of the buildings were demolished or wrecked. Now, it has become Fenghuang Folk Custom Museum.
