Relocated here from original site. Now without the fronting pool that used to reflect the screen with the 9 dragons dancing on the reflected water.
Worth seeing as it only takes a short while.

For a 10 Yuan entry fee, you get to see the 9 dragon wall on its own in a yard, which gives great perspective to how big it is, you can spend time taking in the detail. We went in winter and had the place to ourselves, very cold and worth it.

It's just a wall. It's cool to check out if it's along the way or if you've nothing to do. But it's just a wall with some dragons and you go take some selfies. Nothing else! No history behind it that I could read or tell. Reviewed by Ronny Fang.

The screen itself has tons of history but there's nothing much else around it. It's a nice pit-stop but def. not a major attraction. If you don't have time, would skip it.

There are three nine dragon screens remaining in the world/China.
1) Inside of Forbidden City in Beijing
2) Inside of Beihai Park in Beijing (this one is double-sided and the only double-sided screen in the world, one and only)
3) This one in Datong
It's beautiful and worth visiting, if you haven't visited ones in Beijing, this is then will be a must see. 15 minutes should be sufficient. You will need to buy a ticket to enter.
