To give you a better understanding of their general lay-out , this Partial Map of Central Beijing combines both Chongwen and Xuanwu Districts into one Map. These Districts combined once made up the most important commercial area of the Ancient Imperial Capital City (during both Ming- and Ching- Dynasties), and as such were located outside the (former) City Walls. During a reconstruction of Beijing in the early 1950's , in the aftermath of the creation of "New China" (Xinhua), the City Walls dating from the Imperial Ming Era were dismantled to make room for better roads around- and into the Inner City. The Border between Chongwen- and Xuanwu-Districts in the South and DongCheng and XiCheng districts North within the Former Walled City is known as QianMen Dajie. This Road, leading to QianMen or the Former Front Gate of the Historic Imperial City, has been built on the space made available by tearing down the Southern City Walls , All major monuments, landmarks, streets and side-streets are included and depicted, as well as well-known hotels, temples, administration buildings. Parts of DongCheng District and XiCheng District included. On the Right and East the entire Map is bordered by the 3Rd Ring Road and The Southern Stretches of ChaoYang District.
