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? I’m wondering if this could be a coverup story for the actual great wall of China.
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.
Below, there is a map of the central part of Beijing drawn by British cartographers in 1927. The areas in blue are outside the city walls. The various temples have been highlighted with yellow. The Temple of Earth (Ditan) in the north, the Temple of the Sun in the east, and the Temple of the Moon in the west are all outside the city walls. The Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan) and the Temple of Agriculture are both within the city walls in the south section of the city. At the time that the map was drawn, the Republic of China had been founded and the Qing Dynasty had ended. The cartographer indicated the Qing Dynasty names for the sections of the city. The upper brown section was called the Tartar City because only the Manchus, the rulers of China during the Qing Dynasty, were allowed to live there. The lower part of the brown section was known as the Outer City. Chinese were allowed to live there and build their business, most of which were necessary to the running of the imperial households.
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?
