Not spectacular, but nice. Still - worth going there while walking in Beihai park. Good place for selfie :P

Like the title says, this is a rarity and easy to find/tour. The detail and preservation are perfect.

This is a lovely cite to visit. The nine dragons were spectacular to see. The wall needs some upgrade to keep it in pristine condition. Well worth a visit

A beautiful and well preserved monument with the 9 dragons located at Beihai park. Too crowded at noon time but worth visiting it for sure!

They are made by colour tiles with 9 dragons in various majestic flight postures. Two are in Beihai Park. Built in 1771, it is located in front of the Palace of Tranquil Longevity. You need to pay extra to enter this area & jewelry halls.
