The Ruins of the Ancient City of Beiting is located in Beiting Village, 12 kilometers north of Jimsar. It is the only key unit of relics under the state protection in northern Xinjiang. First built in the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220), Beiting served as an important communications hub along the north Silk Road as well as a town of strategic importance. Still in existence are streets and lanes, Buddhist pagodas and monasteries, and watchtowers on the city walls.
