Dongan Men Remains - Imperial Wall Foundation Ruins Park, Beijing: 6 reviews and 18 photos
At the eastern end of the Ming wall there is an impressing watchtower. It costs a small penny to enter, and you can see a large map of Beijing in imperial times. There are also a few galleries (www.redgategallery.com). In the tower itself are 144 archers’ windows. The carvings in the wall aren’t new. Allied forces carved them during the boxer rebellion (1900).
Chinese train spotters must love this site. From here it is possible to have complete control of Beijing railway station.
