Part 2 Reasons behind the Capital's Prosperity 


The alluvial fan of the Yongding River creates sufficient space for the urban construction of Beijing and also provides abundant water resources, raw materials and natural transport capacity. Relying on raw materials as well as the land and water transport channels in the Western Hills – Yongding River region, several dynasties such as the Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing established their capitals there, cementing Beijing's historical place as the nation's political and cultural center.
