    Badaling Great Wall


      Badaling is the site of the most visited section of the Great Wall of China, approximately 50 miles northwest of urban Beijing city in Yanqing County, which is within the Beijing municipality. The portion of the wall running through the site was built in 1504 during the Ming Dynasty, along with a military outpost reflecting the location's strategic importance. The highest point of Badaling is Beibalou, approximately 1,015 metres above sea level.

           Badaling Great Wall was built in Ming Dynasty(1505) occupying a commanding and strategic position for protecting the Juyongguan Pass ( Juyongguan section of the Great Wall ) on its south, further protecting the city of Beijing. 


          The portion of the wall at Badaling has undergone restoration, and in 1957 it was the first section of the wall opening for visiting tourists. Now it is visited annually by millions.  Badaling and the expressway were the site of the finishing circuit of the Urban Road Cycling Course in the 2008 Summer Olympics. Laps of the circuit passed through gates in the wall.

    Ming Tombs


         The Ming Tombs  are located in Changping district, about 50 kilometers to the northwest of  Beijing city.

      During the Ming Dynasty, there  were 14 emperors from the Yongle Reign of Zhudi to the Chongzhen Reign of  Zhuyoujian. 13 emperors had their tombs built there except Zhuqiyu (the Jingtai  Reign) who was buried at the Golden Mountain in the western suburbs of Beijing,  hence the name of the Tombs of 13 Ming Emperors (The Ming Tombs). Getting into the Mausoleum area, you first sight a stone archway  which is the largest as well as the oldest one in China. Further down the  pathway, stands the main gate (Dagong Gate) fronted by a stone tablet with the  inscription of "All Persons Inclusive of Officials Dismount here!" Inside the  Dagong Gate lies, south to north, a 750-meter-long road known as the Shendao  (Sacred Way), lined with 36 vivid stone statues of Men and Animals (in 18 pairs)  and 9 groups of 4 same statues each (two standing and two crouching). All  statues were carved out of one single block of stone. Among the 13  Ming Tombs, each located at the foot of a small hill, only the Tombs of  Changling and Dingling are open to public at present.

      Encompassing an area of 10  hectares, Changling, the tomb for Emperor Zhudi and his wife lies at the foot of  Tianshoushan (the Mountain of Heavenly Longevity).

The  Changling Hall covers an area of 1956.44 square meters, that surpassing that of  the Taihe Hall (Hall of Supreme Harmony). It is supported by 60 precious  columns, each made of a whole trunk of nanmu and remaining intact without any  protection after 500 years.

      Dingling, the  mausoleum of Emperor Zhuyijun of the Ming Dynasty and his two empresses Xiaoduan  and Xiaojing is located at the foot of Dayu Mountain. Lying 27 meters below the  surface and covering an area of 1195 square meters, the Underground Palace is  composed of 5 Chambers: the Front, the Middle, and the Rear Chambers, Left and  Right Annex Chambers.
