There are thousands of Hutong surrounding the Forbidden City, most of which came into being in the Yuan, Ming, Qing Dynasties. Old local residents have a saying: "There are 360 large hutongs and many small hutongs as there are hairs on an ox." With the development of the economy and city constructions, there are mainly 4000 Hutongs in Beijing at present.
