Jiumenkou Pass is located in Suizhong County, 15 kilometers south of
Shanhai Pass. Built in 1381, the 14th year of Emperor Hongwu's reign
of the Ming Dynasty, it is the first gateway to eastern Beijing. Over
the Jiujiang River nearby, there is a 7, 000-square-meter stone bridge
spanning the river. Under the bridge there are nine water gates, hence
its name. At each end of the stone bridge there is a wall in the shape
of the bridgehead. The Jiumenkou Pass was a place of strategic importance
in the past dynasties.
