Juyongguan Great Wall, one of the most famous pass in Great Wall, is lying in Changping District over 50 kilometers north from downtown Beijing. Juyongguan, a gateway to ancient Beijing from Inner Mongolia, was built in a 15-kilometer long ravine flanked by mountains. The cavalrymen of Genghis Khan swept through it in the 13th century. At the center og the pass is a white marble paltform named the Cloud Terrace, which was called the Crossing -Street Dagoba, since its narrow arch spanned the main street of the pass and on the top of the terrace there used to be three stone dagobas, built in the Yuan Dynasty (1206-1368A.D.). At the bottome of the terrace is a half-octagonal arch gateway, interesting for its wealth of the detail: it is decorated with splendid images of Buddha and four celestial guardians carved on the Walls. The vividness of their expressions is matched by the exquisite workmanship. Such grandiose relics works, with several stones pieced together, are rarely seen in ancient Chinese carving. the gate jambs bear a multi-lingual Buddhist sutra, carved some 600 years ado in Sanskrit, Tibetan, Mongolian, Uygur, Han Chinese and the language of the Western Xia. They are valuable to the study of the Buddhism and ancient languages.
