Where is Juyongguan Great Wall in Beijing
Juyongguan Great Wall is located in a valley 20 kilometers north of Changping County Town. It is 60 kilometers away from Beijing and 20 kilometers away from Badaling Great Wall. It is an important pass of the Great Wall.
Tour Juyongguan is mainly to see the tall and magnificent Guancheng and the continuous ups and downs of the stacks, as well as Yuntai exquisite stone carvings.
Guancheng: In Ming Dynasty, Juyong had two peripheral crossings, the South was called Nankou, and the North was Badalingkou. Guancheng was located in the canyon (Guanju) on the north of Nankou. There is a north-south gate in the city, and an urn city in the South gate. A trapped throat passage goes through the North-South gate.
Yuntai: In the center of Guancheng, there is a beautifully carved white marble terrace called Yuntai, which was built from Yuan Dynasty to the fifth year of Zhengzheng (1345 A.D.). It was the base of the building. There were Street towers and Tai’an Temple on the terrace successively. There are only constellations left.
