This dragon screen in Behai Park was constructed in 1756 during the Qing Dynasty. This glazed-tile screen has 2 identical sides each with nine dragons. Beautiful and a magnificent work of art, the colours are still vivid. Worth a visit if in the park.

Check it out if your in Beihai Park (I think). I have been told by locals that it is special because it has dragons on both sides of the screen. I wouldn't make a special trip to see this though.
