Taicheng Wall

Taicheng WallTaicheng Wall

Taicheng is part of the Nanjing City Wall that lines the western edges of Xuanwu Lake. It was used to refer to the wall between the walls between Jiefang Gate and Jiuhuashan Hill. It is accessible from the old horse ramp or through an elevated walkway from Jiming Temple. Taicheng is once the Palace in Dong Jin and in South Dynastry. Taicheng is lower than the rest of the city wall and connects to it not far from the ticket office.

Where Taicheng connects to taller part of the city wall, a small museum has a model showing the complete city wall in relation to old Nanjing. Standing on the top of the city wall, the tourists can see Zhongshan Hill in the east, Xuanwu Lake in the north, city mansions in the south and Jiming Temple in the west. A museum about the history of Ming Dynasty’s City Wall stands here.

Location: No.8 Jiefangmen, Huanhui Road, Xuanwu District, Nanjing.
Entrance Fee: RMB 15
