Hulu Island, the Ming Great Wall and Jiumen Pass

The 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.
