Together with archway, hutong, countryard and red wall, it forms the block landscape of "Beijing flavor", fully reflecting the style of the ancient capital of Beijing. With the old countryard as its core, the landscape is endowed with the meaning of welcoming friends from all over the world, allowing tourists to enjoy the beauty of traditional Beijing in small courtyards.
