In the 17th Century, the Emperor KangXi waged war with the Ming Loyalists in Taiwan and de-populated the coastline. This resulted in Shenzhen being populated by a lot of Hakka so that they made up half the city. Relations between the Hakka and Cantonese became strained and in the 19th Century alone half-a-million people lost their lives in the struggle. As a result, the Hakkas fortified their settlements.
The largest rectangular “Wie” fort can be found at Crane Lake in Longgang District and it now serves a more peaceful purpose as a museum of Hakka Culture. Another well-preserved fort and village can also be found at Dawanshiju.
