With a length of 800meters (2624 ft), Nanluoguxiang has 16 Hutongs running across from south to north; 8 in the east and 8 in the west. Lots of officials and celebs have been lived here since Ming (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty (1636-1911). Historical marks can be found in every Hutong here. Nanluoguxiang is among the first 25 areas listed as historical sites by Beijing Municipal Government in 1990. With its impressive historical reputation and cultural influences, Nanluoguxiang has become a popular attraction in Beijing

Walk along theShichahai area to explore the old buildings,and enjoy the surrounding scenearies.Grey courtyard walls, lush and green willow trees, quiet water…all this displays the generosity of this city.
The water area of Shichahai was called “haizi” prior to the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368). It consisted of Xihai, Qianhai and Houhai which were unknown to the public. With Beihai Lake becoming an imperial backgarden, some 20 temples were built in the area of Shichahai Lake. It was said that these temples were established for the convenience of women to leave the imperial families. “Cha” refers to a small temple while “shi” can mean “tens”, hence the name of Shichahai.
