The upper part of the stack is provided with a lookout, and the inner and outer parts of each stack are connected. The first floor is surrounded by a series of buildings, which were the barracks of the guards at that time. So far, the base still exists.

Close to the small brick city under Taipei, the famous tribute city, was the venue for Mongolian and Han officials to receive talks and hold tribute ceremonies. In 1992, the Shaanxi Provincial Government announced it as a provincial cultural relics protection unit.


After the Qin Dynasty destroyed the Six Kingdoms, counties and counties were set up in Yulin area to build the Great Wall, and Zhenbeitai Great Wall was one of them. In the early Ming Dynasty, Yansui Town moved from Suide to Yulin, and established cities to trade with Mongolians in Hongshan, Shenmu, Huangfuchuan and other places north of Yansui Town.

Since the exchange of markets, Mongolians often wait for opportunities to go south and plunder property. In order to ensure the security of the border cities, Yu Zijun, governor of Yansui, built the Great Wall of Yansui Town in April on the basis of the Great Wall of Qin and Sui Dynasties in the 10th year of Chenghua in Ming Dynasty (1474). At the same time, in order to cooperate with the trade of Hongshan City, he built Yima City and the tribute city for Mongolians to control trade. In the thirty-fifth year of Wanli (1607), Beitai, a town built at the southwest corner of Gongcheng on the red hill, was also a prominent place in the north and south of the Great Wall. It stood high and observed the enemy's situation and mutual market situation. The plane of Zhenbeitai is square and four stories high.

The platform is square, four-storey, brick-and-stone-layered outside, rammed earth-layered inside, brick-and-stone-layered outside, with large bottom and small top, and receives layer by layer. It covers an area of nearly 5000 square meters.

All floors are surrounded by parapets and mounds, and the terrace floor is covered with green bricks. On the first level, there are garrison barracks built inside the city wall, and some remains are still there. Each floor of the platform has stone steps to climb. Taiyi Mountain is dangerous and tall. Standing at the top of Zhenbeitai, we can see the golden sand and blue sky, the Bicheng reservoir, the Great Wall, the green forest belt and the suburbs.

Zhenbeitai, for the thirty-fifth year of the Ming Dynasty (1607) from April to July next year, Tu Zongjun, governor of Yansui Town, built the largest military observatory on the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty, known as the first Great Wall, in order to protect Hongshan City, which is located in the Mutual City of Mongolia and Han on the edge of the nearby Great Wall. It has a history of nearly 400 years up to 2009.

Every layer of Zhenbeitai is covered with surface bricks, and the top of each layer of platform is covered with brick stacks, about 2 meters high, and a hopeful mouth is built. The moss marks are barged, which is very simple and magnificent.

Governor Yansui of the Ming Dynasty, Governor of the Three Sides of Shaanxi Province and Right Sergeant Liu Minkuan of the Ministry of Military Affairs visited Zhenbeitai and wrote the poem "Zhenbeitai":

The autumn sounds of the important town are very loud, and the tour is not for the stage.

Thousands of mountains stretch far into the clouds, and a stream of water comes from the desert.

Cui Kuo of Xuge is close to the sky, and the stopper is twirling around the earth.

With Gao Ji's eyes on the wolf Yanjing, it seems that it is Xiaoyao Diaoyuan.

During the exchange period between Mongolia and Han in Hongshan City of Yima City, Mongolian herdsmen drove cattle, sheep, camels, horses and furs.
