Nine Dragon Wall: Nine Sons of the Dragon In Bei Hai Park, Beijing

Dragon's Nine Sons

Dragons in Chinese architecture, paintings, and culture.
According to legend the Dragon had nine sons, and each had a strong personality. There is no general agreement as to what the Dragon's sons are called, however, to most people, they are:-


HAOXIAN
A reckless and adventurous dragon whose image can be found decorating the eaves of palaces.
YAZI
Valiant and bellicose; his image is seen on sword-hilts and knife hilts.
CHIWEN
Chiwen likes to gaze into the distance and his appearance is often carved on pinnacles.
BAXIA
Baxia is a good swimmer and his image decorates many bridge piers and archways.
PULAO
Pulao is fond of roaring and his figure is carved on bells.
BIXI
Bixi is an excellent pack-animal whose image appears on panniers.
QIUNIU
Qiuniu loves music and his figure is a common decoration on the bridge of stringed musical instruments.
SUANMI
Suanmi is fond of smoke and fire; his likeness can be seen on the legs of incense-burners.
JIAOTU
Jiaotu is as tight-lipped as a mussel or a snail. His image is carved on doors.

This Great Wall China picture shows the view looking down from one of the towers to the bottom landing, from where we started our climb. The Great Wall China picture does not show the sections without steps, nor the steps on the steeper parts with uneven heights. The handrails were highly polished from much use.

Joke shared by Happy People spending leisure time in Park at Changsha on a Sunday break. Robert's wild card about three young Chinese men who have derived some benefit from the increase in the number of tourists visiting China. Xiao Cheng 1 and Xiao Cheng 2 were both waiters, and Xiao Zhang a barman in the Furama Hotel in Changsha. Happy people sharing a joke in park at Changsha
On a visit to a Farmer's Market near the Temple of Heaven we saw this bearded man who had arrived on a bike almost as old as his 87 years. Adding his image to the pictures of old people in Beijing was no problem, but he requested that copies be sent to him. It was difficult to assess his true age, not that it mattered, for old people of whatever age are well respected in China.
