The Great Wall at Juyong Pass
The section of the Great Wall at Juyong Pass is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are rolling mountains, winding streams and lush vegetation around the Pass. It was renowned as one of the eight most beautiful scenic spots in Beijing during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It was also called the World's Most Magnificent Pass because of its strategic location. Various additional structures were built at the pass, such as the barbican entrances, gate towers, watchtowers and water gates which constituted a complete military defense system. In addition, the foundation of a pagoda built during the Yuan Dynasty (1206-1368) and known as "Cloud Terrace" is an exquisite masterpiece of stone carving art of the Yuan Dynasty. After ten years' of restoration, the renewed Great Wall at Juyong Pass serves as a showcase for visitors to understand the ancient complete architectural system of the Great Wall as well as the cultural and historical significance of the Great Wall.
