The surrounding wall of the city surrounded a 400 metres square area. The city had fourstone turtles, whose some are still visible.The city was completely destroyed by Ming troops in 1380. A few relics still remain, notably two granite turtles, the base of a palace, some stone lions, two columns and a few traces of irrigation channel.
