Located in Shahuhang Street, Dongpo District, Meishan City, the Ancestral Temple of the Three Sus is the former residence of Su Xun, Su Shi, and Su Zhe, three famous literary scholars and also three generations in the Su Family in the Northern Song Dynasty. Originally the residence of the Su Family, this dwelling house was transformed into an ancestral hall in the Yuan Dynasty but was later destroyed in warfare in the late Ming Dynasty. In the fourth year during the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty (1665), it was rebuilt in situ into a hall for people to memorize scholars of the Su Family and a humanistic tourist attraction.
