Dapeng Fortress

Dapeng Fortress is one of the ‘Top Eight Scenic Spots’ in Shenzhen. It was built in 1394 to protect the area from pirates and was developed into a village during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Occupying an area of 110,000sqm., Dapeng Fortress is the only State-protected cultural relic in Shenzhen. It is only a 5-minute walk away from the Dongshan Monastery.
