the whole country and plays an important role in international
trade and communications. Beijing has a 3,000-year history,
covers 16,808 square kilometers in area, with 14 million
Part of Beijing's charm lies in its
being an city with many splendid cultural relics. One
of the six ancient Chinese capitals, Beijing became
the capital known as Ji of the state of Yan during the
Zhou Dynasty over 3,000 years ago. In the early 12th
century, the Kin Dynasty (1115-1234) established its
capital here. After conquering and unifying China, the
Mongols founded the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and made
Beijing their capital, calling it Dadu. When Marco Polo,
the Italian traveller, came to the city, he was so impressed
by the grandeur of Dadu that he said it was the most
prosperous and the largest city in the world, both in
area and in the grandeur of its buildings. The two later
dynasties, Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911), both
had Beijing as their capital. It was during the Ming
Dynasty that the Imperial Palace, or Forbidden City
as it is also called, was built.
As the capital of six ancient dynasties,
Beijing holds the biggest collection of ancient sites
and relics in the nation. The most well known ones are:
Great Wall, Imperial Palace - Forbidden City, Summer
Palace, Temple of Heaven, Ming Tombs, Yonghegong Lamasery,
