Built during the reign of Emperor Yongle (1404-1592) during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the wall was a military fortress defending the capital as well as imperial tomb cluster, the Ming tombs. According to legend, General Cai Kai took charge of the construction of this section, but was beheaded in a frame-up for jerry-rigging the construction. When the emperor later found the wall was truly firm, a tomb and tablet was made for him as atonement. The wall is approximately 14 kilometers (15 yards) long, snaking over the mountain ridge or ducking in and out of the water, a singularly wonderful landscape.
