Fort is located by the Haihe River estuary 60 km southeast to the city.
An important coastal fort, it was built during the reign of the Ming
Emperor, Jia Jing. During the Opium War it was expanded and five big
forts and 20 smaller ones were constructed. All of these were dismantled
when the Eight-Power Allied Forces invaded China. Today there are only
two, one on the southern southern bank and the other on the northern
bank. In 1988 Dagu Fort was listed as an important historical site,
repaired and placed understate protection. It was opened to the public
in June 1997.
