The Central Point of Beijing City is located in the south of Wanchun Pavilion, Jingshan Park. It is the intersection point of north-south axis of Beijing city wall, so called central point.

Though this central point is less than 50 meters high, you can still view the important landmarks and scenic attractions around, just because it is the central point.
