Introduction

Mutianyu Great Wall is located in the Huairou District in Beijing, about 73 kilometers away from downtown Beijing. It was built on the ruins of the Beiqi Great Wall under the supervision of the General Xu Da in the early age of  Ming Dynasty. In the second year of Ming Yongle years( 1404A.D.), Mutianyu guan Pass was built. In the third year of Longqing years(A.D. 1569), When Tan Lun and Qi Jiguang were defending the Beijing area, they renovated the Great Wall again. Now what we call as Mutianyu Great Wall is one of best preserved section of the Great Wall from Ming Dynasty.
