Remains of Taihe City
City's ruins are located on a mountain slope in the west of
Taihe Village about 7 km., south of the county seat of Dali.
The City of Taihe was once the capital of Nanzhao Kingdom.
The city proper was already reduced to ruins, but the southern
and northern walls still remain today. The southern city wall
stretches to Erhai Lake from the northern slope of Ma'er Peak
of Cangshan Mountain while the northern wall runs eastwards
from Foding Peak. The walls were tamped with earth and rocks.
The west part of the northern wall is 6 "chi" in height and
12 "chi" in thickness. The influence of the architecture of
Chang An, the national capital of the Tang Dvnasty, was obvious.
