Streets of Dashilar. Dashilar should be the most ancient, famous and distinctive commercial street in hutongs of Beijing. Located outside the Qianmem Gate, Dashilar Street takes dozens of steps to walk from southwest of Tian'anmen Square to its east end. Dashilar originated in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and was finally built in the Ming Dynasty by local people, who put wooden gates at both ends of the street. In the Qing Dynasty and beyond, Dashilar was enlarged and grew in prosperity day by day. Eight Beijing old stores are still located there. .*** General Caption *** In view of Beijing Design Week, a look at the places where there are most of the events.
