Quick Facts
Notes
  • The wall has nine large dragons, and over 500 smaller dragons.
  • This wall is a smaller version of the one in BeiHai Park just outside the Forbidden City in Beijing.
  • The tiles for this wall were made in China and shipped to Chicago for assembly.
  • According to the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago, this wall helps with Chinatown's feng shui, as it is assaulted with bad energy from the ramp from I-55.
