This map has been created exclusively forAtique, made to order here.
The purpose of this map is mainly to show the location, name, and appearance of each of the Gates and their Towers on all the concentric City Walls of Old Peking: Forbidden City, Imperial City, Inner City (Tartar), and Outer Wall.
On the left is a map of Ming-Qing Peking, and on the right is the earliest extant Photograph of each Gate according to its original location. Though almost all of the Gates and their Towers have since disappeared the names of the locations remain and can be readily identified on a current city map.
Each location name is displayed in Traditional Chinese Characters, Pinyin, and their translation.
