In 1984, the people of Tianjin spent three years repairing 3,308 yards of the main wall. They restored 20 terraces, the Huangya Water Gate (shuǐ guān 水关), and the Bagua Castle (bā guà chéng 八卦城). The defensive system of the wall is complete. Watch towers, frontier cities, drain holes, emplacements, barracks and other indispensable military facilities are arranged orderly along the wall.
