With the support of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, we have researched cities and villages in Fujian Province that have distinctive folk cultural characteristics. This article focuses on Xiamen, a diverse city with oceanic, Minnan and overseas Chinese cultures. Despite its high level of urbanization, its ceremonial spaces have been well-preserved. By studying its distribution patterns and developmental history, we reveal the basic ways and methods of survival for traditional ceremonial spaces in the urbanization process, providing a reference for cultural roots-seeking, inheritance, and development.
