Just wanted to share these few images and see what you think about this Chinese Tartar wall. I have never heard of it. Have you? LOL. They call it: Beijing city fortifications.
  • The Inner city wall was 24 kilometres (15 mi) long and 15 metres (49 ft) high, with a thickness of 20 metres (66 ft) at ground level and 12 metres (39 ft) at the top, and had nine gates.
  • The wall stood for nearly 530 years, but in 1965, was removed to allow for construction of the 2nd Ring Road and Line 2 of the Beijing Subway.
  • Only one part of the original wall still exists, just south of the Beijing railway station in the southeast portion of the city.
  • The Outer city walls had a perimeter of approximately 28 kilometres (17 mi).
  • The entire enclosure of the Inner and Outer cities formed a shape with a perimeter of nearly 60 kilometres (37 mi).

Unfortunately I don’t have time to do a proper research at the moment.

The Tartar Wall sourrounds the Inner City of Beijing. Originally in the 16th Century it had been the Mongol City of Dadu; it was in the form of a square with the walls having a perimeter of nearly 15 miles.

I think back then China was basically a part of the Tartar landscape in Asia, i.e. Chinese Tartary.

I think on this one we will have to dig a bit deeper than colleges and wikipedia. Anything Mongol probably derives from Moguls with their great Mogul at the helm. For they share the same territories.

And Tartaria only became a region after they wiped clean its imperial history. They tried hard to make Tartaria sound like some region ie Siberia, or Sahara. They almost succeeded too.

Not much to add here except this building is amazing.

Not too common to have a rail road next to a palace. We usually put those in the poor part of town.

It would make hauling the bricks to the building site easier but IS that a train? I don't see any chimneys for a steam engine or any horses to draw the wagon. What IS the locomotive power of that thing?

I did look closer...what am I missing? the one "tree" that is different than the others? I am not convinced that the artist intended that to be a weed on the roof. Not trying to be argumentative- I sincerely want to know what you are seeing.

Its no wonder that America and the Imperial European powers fought bitterly to keep their stakes in China during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900.
The movie made them heroes. "99 Days in Peking."
China and her Tartarian wonders were/are a treasure for all of us.
Ill bet the Europeans knew about the many pyramids too.

So maybe the entire forbidden city is from the previous culture? Usually history is opposite from reality, so perhaps it was the last holdout location for an invasion.

Possibly auto defenses were still active so they just left it alone? Or why would they really just leave it empty?

Anyway, fascinating find. The whole area is interesting.
