The residence of Kublai Kahn.

Round city and the near by Beihai park were chosen by Kublai Kahn, grand-son of Genghis Kahn and founder of Yuan Dynasty as his residence. This is the other imperial city then and it deserves for sure a visit for the fantastic view of marble bridges, lotus flowers, nice boats and, on top of Jade Flower island, the huge white pagoda, resembling a stupa.

I’ve visited Beijing and the Round city during my trip around the world. Here below you can find the article in which I describe my experience.
