Stone Stele & 1,000 Characters of Happiness, Great Wall of China

The stone stele stands in front of the wall of the One Thousand Characters of Happiness near the entrance to the Great Wall of China. The 1,000 Characters of Happiness is a fascinating display which reminds visitors of the many reasons to be happy. Each character, and the one on the stele, represents another concept of happiness. The display is found at the entrance to the Great Wall closest to the city of Tianjin near to Mao's Garden.
