The Splay Walls is a popular name for the screen walls flanking the Rectangula Citadel.At 7 meters high and 21 meters long,they are covered with glazed roof and stand on two layers of brick Sumeru pedestals.Their four corners are decorated with brick-carved flower patterns,which are masterpiece of early Ming Dynasty art.Through more than 600 years,the patterns are still distinct and intact,and thus of great value.
