The starting point of the Great Wall which is five kilometers to the east of Shanhaiguan dips into the sea like a dragon's head. While it dips 20 meters into the sea, it is piled up 10 meters high where the surging waves beat against the rocks, resembling a dragon's head. Hence the name Old Dragon Head. The Jinglu platform, the South sea pass, and the Chenghailou Tower and the Ninghai Castle are in a strong fortification there which add up to the structure.
