Updated:2008-06-05 08:48 | Source:

Chinese name: 大栅栏

Lying to the northwest of Qianmen Dajie, Da Zha Lan (pronounced Da Sha Lanr by Beijing Locals) is also a busy street in Xuanwu District. The street was named as Lang Fang Si Tiao in the past. It is 300 meters (328 yards) long but a bit narrow. Both sides of the street are crowded with stores which are busy with visitors coming and going everyday. As a flourishing old street, there are many special time honored shops passed down from older generations. Tongrentang Chinese Herbal Medicine Pharmacy, which was opened in 1669 is the most famous pharmacy for Chinese herbal medicine in the country. Ruifuxiang Silk and Leather Store which started in 1893 offers all kinds of beautiful high quality silk. Da Zha Lan is also under reconstruction and will be open to the public by the end of this year.
