Most of the major tourist attractions in Beijing stretch along a north-south axis. South of the Forbidden City is Tienanmen Square and north of it is Jingshan Park. It has a pagoda at the top of it. The hill is very popular with exerciser as it has a lot of rugged steep steps and paths to the top. From the top the views of the Forbidden City would be excellent if it weren't for the ubiquitous smog.
