Juyong Pass Great Wall Introduction

Juyongguan Pass is located in an 18 kilometer-long valley named 'Guangou' which is inside Changping County more than 50 kilometers from Beijing City. It is o­ne of the three greatest passes of Great Wall of China. The other two passes are Jiayuguan Pass and Shanhai Pass. It had many different names in the past dynasties. However, the name 'Juyongguan Pass' was used by more than three dynasties. It was first used in the Qin Dynasty when Emperor Qinshihuang ordered to build the Great Wall. Juyongguan Pass has two passes, o­ne at the south and o­ne at the north. The south o­ne is called 'Nan Pass' and the north o­ne is called 'Badaling'. This Pass was connected to the Great Wall in the Northern and Southern Dynasties.

Juyong Pass Great Wall Features

In the middle of Juyongguan Pass, there is a 'Cloud Platform' with another name of 'Crossing Street Tower'. It was made of white marble in the Yuan Dynasty with a height of 9.5 meters. Around the top of the platform there are much architecture such as stone railings and a watching post. They are still kept in the style of the Yuan Dynasty. In the middle of the base of the platform there is an arched door where men, horses and carriages could pass through. Many animal images were carved in the arched hole and the arched door. o­n the walls of both sides of the door, the statues of gods and scriptures are carved. There were three white towers o­n the platform in the past (this is how it got the name of 'Crossing Street Tower') and were destroyed in the transitional period between the Yuan Dynasty and the Ming Dynasty. Later a Tai'an Temple was built o­n the platform but was later destroyed in the Qing Dynasty. As there are lush flowers and trees around the Pass like layers of green waves, so it got the good name of 'Juyong Green Layers', which belongs to o­ne of 'Yanjing Eight Best Sceneries'.
