The 9 dragons wall

The Nine Dragons Wall is in the Imperial Palace, or the Forbidden City in Beijing. It was built in 1771 and is the largest out of the three walls of its kind in China. This wall, which is 30 meters long and 3.5 meters high, is made up of 270 pieces of brightly decorated ceramic pottery, which represents nine dragons playing with pearls in front of a sea and sky background.

The walls of the nine dragons are three in number in China. Both are located in Beijing's Forbidden City and Beihai Park (Winter Palace) and the third is located in the city of Datong. These walls are made of ceramic, it is an assembly that represents nine dragons in a different position to defy, or appear to compete on a wall in bright, swirling colors. These scenes in relief represent power since the dragon was the animal representative of the emperor, but also necessary in places that are able to mark the respect and greatness of the Middle Kingdom. Make a pilgrimage to see at all costs three walls is not necessarily required, but if you're in one of three places where they are, do not hesitate to observe the remains of the 18th century that represent the power of China would do this by their incredible and magnificent achievement. Note that the details published herein are those of the wall you will find at Beihai Park in Beijing.

Les murs aux neuf dragons sont au nombre de trois en Chine. Deux se trouvent à Pékin dans la Cité Interdite et au Parc Beihai (Palais d’hiver) et le troisième est situé dans la ville de Datong. Ces murs sont construits en céramique, il s’agit d’un assemblage qui représente neuf dragons dans une position différente qui se défient, semblent jouer ou bien s’affronter sur un mur de couleurs vives et tourbillonnantes. Ces scènes, en relief, représentent le pouvoir puisque le dragon était l’animal représentatif de l’empereur mais aussi s’imposent dans les lieux qui représentent le pouvoir pour marquer le respect et la grandeur de l’Empire du milieu. Effectuer un pèlerinage pour voir à tout prix les trois murs n’est pas forcément nécessaire, mais si vous passez dans l’un des trois lieux où ils se trouvent, n’hésitez pas à observer ces vestiges du 18ème siècle qui représentent la puissance de la Chine ne serait ce par leur réalisation incroyable et magnifique. Notez que les coordonnées publiées ici sont celles du Mur que vous trouverez au parc Beihai à Pékin.

In China's capital, Beijing, is the formidable former imperial palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. It is located within the "Forbidden City", so named because access was limited and had many trenches and walls. Inside there is the wall of the nine dragons. The wall shows 9 dragons facing the sky and water in an excellent finish tiles and demonstrates the supremacy of the 'emperor. In China there are 3 walls like this. You can see them in Shanxi Province and Beihai.

Nella capitale della Cina, Pechino, si trova il formidabile e antico palazzo imperiale della dinastia Ming e Qing. Esso si trova all'interno della "Città Proibita", così chiamata perché l'accesso era limitato e aveva molte trincee e mura. All'interno vi è il muro dei nove Dragoni. Il muro mostra 9 dragoni di fronte al cielo e all'acqua in una eccellente finitura di piastrelle e dimostra la supremazia dell' imperatore. In Cina ci sono 3 muri come questo. Li potete vedere nella provincia dello Shanxi e nel Beihai.
