East Street (Dongda Jie)

Last updated by honey at 2013-11-4

East Street (Dongda Jie) is 2150meters long, ranging from the Drum Tower to Chang Le Gate. It was initially built in Sui Dynasty when the new capital Da Xing Cheng was established. At that time, this street was named Jingfeng Gate Street for its location at the both sides of Jingfeng Gate-the south gate of eastern city wall. At the beginning of Republic of China, the street was greatly constructed, and was called Zhongshan Dajie. Until 1953, it was partly widened and got the name of East Street (Dongda Jie). The East Street descending from the central Bell Tower has regular fashion shops selling finer clothes and shoes (e.g. Louis Vuitton).
