A very fancy manhole cover in Shanghai. ( someone that read this says it is in Beijing instead of Shanghai. We were in both places so I have gotten some of them confused).

The words on the manhole show it's located in Beijing's major shppoing street "Wang Fu Jin". It gives a brief history of the famous street. And the name "Wang Fu Jin" comes from a well called Wang Fu. Jin = well. Wang Fu = palace.

The location of the manhole actually is where the original well was.

Thanks for the information, I thought I had taken this in Shanghai. I didn't get any information at the time, just thought it was interesting.
