Summary Beijing is the capital and political heart of the People's Republic of China. With a history that dates back thousands of years, Beijing is home to some of the country's most famous historic sites: the Imperial Palace, the Temple of Heaven, and Tiananmen Square. Yet today, as modern high-rise buildings and roads replace Beijing's traditional architecture and hutongs, or old lanes, many residents worry that the city's rapid modernization will destroy its ancient culture and history. Great Cities of the World explores what makes Beijing a multifaceted city.
