Pudong is a district of Shanghai, China, located east of the Huangpu River across from the historic city center of Shanghai in Puxi. The name refers to its historic position as "The East Bank" of the Huangpu River, which flows through central Shanghai, although it is now administered as the Pudong New Area, a state-level new area which extends all the way to the East China Sea.
The traditional area of Pudong is now home to the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone and the Shanghai Stock Exchange and many of Shanghai's best-known buildings, such as the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jin Mao Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Center, and the Shanghai Tower. These modern skyscrapers directly face Puxi's historic Bund, a remnant of a former foreign concessions in China. The rest of the new area includes the Shanghai Expo and Century Park, Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Pudong international airport, the Jiuduansha Wetland Nature Reserve, and a planned Disney resort.

The Nine Dragon Wall 九龙壁 (Jiǔ Lóng Bì) is a relatively recent addition to the Forbidden City. The wall was built in 1773 as a part of a large renovation of the northeastern section of the palace to create a retirement villa for Emperor Qianlong (1735-1796). The wall is located east of the Outer Court and the Hall of Preserving Harmony 保和殿 (Bǎo Hé Diàn).
The Nine Dragon Screen, or Wall, was built to provide privacy by blocking the view through the Gate of Imperial Supremacy (Huangji men) into the Palace of Tranquil Longevity (Ningshou gong). The screen is 96.5 feet long and 11.5 feet tall. Such walls also denied access to evil spirits, which must travel in straight lines. If you place a wall in front of a gate or main entrance to a home you answer both needs.
The Nine Dragon Screen was inspired by one that can be seen in Beihai Park, to the north of the Forbidden City. The dragon is the symbol of power, but is also symbolic of luck, prayers for rain, a god to control floods, and in some cases, is symbolic of longevity.
Notice that the dragons are swimming in the ocean waves. The Chinese dragon does not breathe fire and kidnap maidens. The Chinese dragon is a benevolent creature that saved mankind from drought by making it rain. The dragon also has the power to calm waters, so when a river floods, a dragon is called upon to dispel the waters.
An imperial dragon has five toes on each foot. Most of the minor dragons have three toes. Only the emperor was allowed to display images of imperial dragons. It was part of the rites of ancient traditions: the rites that Confucius believed cemented a culture together by clearly delineating the position of the ruler as separate and above those of lesser rank. It was an insignia of office, like the stars on a five star general, but had much deeper import. The rites helped to maintain the balance of order between the heavens and the earth. When followed, the rites brought good fortune, health, and prosperity to both an individual and to the nation.
Starting from the left, the first dragon in the Nine Dragon Wall is golden, as are the fifth and the last dragons. Symmetry is an important part of any Chinese design. Symmetry is not followed slavishly. Notice that the two pairs of dragons on the left face one another, while those on the right of the central dragon break that pattern and by doing so emphasizes the dragons as a group rather than as pairs.
