The City Wall

As an important strategic point of the Central Plains, Kaifeng was founded as Daliang City by the Wei Kingdom as early as 2,300 years ago in the Warring States Period. The city wall was rebuilt and enlarged during the Tang Dynasty, the Five Dynasties, Zhou Dynasty, Northern Song Dynasty, Jin Dynasty and Ming Dynasty. There are five entrances, which are very grand and significant. In the Ming Dynasty, the city was badly damaged by flood. In 1662 A.D, the first year of the Kangxi Period in the Qing Dynasty, the city was rebuilt on the remnant of the old one and later. In1841 A.D 21 during the Daoguang Period it was rebuilt and has been kept until today.

According to records, the total length of the city wall is 14.15 kilometers with a height of more than 11 meters. The parapet is 2 meters tall with a width of 5 meters on the top and 7 meters at the bottom. At the four corners of the city wall, there are four corner towers, and the entire wall contains eight enemy broadcasting towers. At present, the gates of the entrances are no longer in existence, but the surrounding wall remains almost in its previous dimensions. This ancient city wall is one of the few preserved in China.
