Chapter Summary

To the east, Shenyang adjoins the Ninguta Tower. To the north it tugs at Jehol. To the south it strokes Korea, and to the west the Great Wall ensures that whole world cannot budge an inch. The arrival of a multitude of Mongolian carts, probably as many as several thousand, each full of bricks, invited my attention. Every year Yenjing (Beijing) hands down the salaries of high-ranking civil officials and military officers of the Eight Banners in Shenyang. Nowadays, there is frequent traffic of people from Qing dynasty court to Shengjing. Shengci Temple was built in the Chingde 2nd year. The temple building is majestic and luxurious. There are two stone monuments, one of which has the inscription of Imperial College graduate Ganglin on its front, and Manchurian writing on its back. Zhubi shan Mountain is in the south-west of Liaoyang. In former times, it was called Shou shan Mountain.
