South Luogu Lane is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Beijing and has a history of more than 740 years. It is also among the 25 old city reserves in the plan. Because of its high terrain, low north and south, such as a hunchback, it is named Luoguo Lane. In the Qing Dynasty, the "Full Map of Beijing" drawn in the fifteenth year of Emperor Qianlong (1750) was renamed Nanluoguxiang.

South Luogu Lane and its surrounding area used to be the city center of the capital, and it was a place of great wealth in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The streets and streets were crowded with the dignitaries, and the palaces were numerous, until the Qing Dynasty was destroyed. The prosperity of Nanluoguxiang also followed slowly.

Nanluoguxiang runs from north to south, and there are 8 hutongs in the east and west. They are arranged in a “fishbone shape”. They continue the “checkerboard pattern” since ancient times. The whole block is like a big raft, so it is also called the street.
