We found the Nine dragon screen during our wanderings around the delightful Beihai Park. It is quite an impressive piece of work and definitely worth a look if in the area.

Nice dragon carvings and very colorful glazed tiles. Great place to take a picture. This is one of two in Beijing, the other is located in the Forbidden City. The one in Beihei is 2 sided so you can take a picture from either sides.

About 5ms high and 25ms long this was impressive. There were other dragon screens, but most not in colour like this one. There are dragon carved screens at the forbidden city but not in colour. Very busy at beihai park when we saw this. Getting a photos is near impossible with the amount of people standing in front of the screen.
You have to walk right through beihai park and around to the other side of the lake to see the screen, if entering beihai park near the white dagoba.
Close to drum and be tower from here.

When we arrived at the Nine Dragon Screen, there was nobody. So we were able to see it closely. My guide told me the meaning of the dragon playing balls in relation to the dragon worship: firstly, the ball is considered as the egg of a creature, the beginning of a being, and the dragon is protecting and caring the being; secondly, the ball is a fire ball, referring to the Sun which rises from the East, while the azure dragon is divine dragon in the East.
When I saw the Nine Dragon Screen in the Forbidden City, I understood that a screen wall (image wall) was to separate the inside of a home/property from the outside/the street. But now I couldn’t understand why this Nine Dragon Screen was standing in this particular part of the park.

What a surprise to see all these dragons in different vivid colours. Difficult to imagine how it was built and who had worked on it.

The nine dragon screen is a great piece to see in Beihai Park in Beijing. It's about 7 meters high and 30+ meters long. The screen has historical, cultural and artistic significance.

The screen was built over 250 years ago of thousands of coloured tiles. There are only 3 other 9 dragon screens in China. The other two are in the Forbidden City and in Datong.

It's beautiful and definitely worth a visit if you're in Beihai Park.

This dragon screen in Behai Park was constructed in 1756 during the Qing Dynasty. This glazed-tile screen has 2 identical sides each with nine dragons. Beautiful and a magnificent work of art, the colours are still vivid. Worth a visit if in the park.

Located in the Beihai Park, this is not highly recommended if you are a tourist and have limited time. But if you have time then do visit. Its an important place for locals. The dragons look awesome and the original colours of the dragons still exists.
