Long Description:
The original wall dates back to the Northern Zhou Dynasty (557-581 A.D.) and was made up of an outer wall and an inner wall with a total length of 24km.

On Feb. 18th, 2010 a fire broke out and burnt the two-storey wooden attic down. The rebuilding work was launched on early March under the principle of “preserving the old style” with the budget of two million RMB and finished in July, 2010.

It's possible to visit the gate where there is a small exhibition on the town and photos of the wall and gate before and after restoration.
