Rituals of Zhou

The Rituals of Zhou contains a "Record of Trades" with important information on architecture and city planning in Ancient China. A passage records that 'The master craftsman constructs the state capital. He makes a square nine li on one side; each side has three gates. Within the capital are nine north-south and nine east-west streets. The north-south streets are nine carriage tracks in width'.
