The city of Datong was a strategic military town fought over by rival groups throughout history, because of its location on the border between different cultures, nomadic and agricultural. Datong is called “the museum of the Great Wall” by some scholars because of its preservation of abundant wall relics which dates from the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
Different from the well-preserved and restored sections of the wall in Beijing like Badaling and Mutianyu, the Great Wall in Datong is mostly composed of ruins built of packed earth rather than brick. The majority of the remains you can see now are from Ming Dynasty.
Deshengpu Fortress was a key access and trading hub between the central plain and the Mongolian areas. In the Ming Dynasty, a market was set up here for the merchants of the Han and Mongolian tribes to do business.
