Khubilai transferred the winter capital to Yanjing, where he constructed Khanbalig, modern Beijing.
Khubilai's court was patterned after those of his Chinese predecessors, and he and his successors adopted Chinese-style reign titles.
Khubilai, for his part, favored Tibetan Lamaist Buddhism; 'Phags-pa (1238–80), the man who devised a script for the Mongolian language, was appointed Khubilai's imperial mentor and governor of Tibet, and later became a close confidante of the Great Khan.

 Morris Rossabi, Khubilai Khan, ch 5
Khubilai wished to be perceived both as the legitimate Khan of Khans of the Mongols and as the Emperor of China.
Khubilai was concerned with the welfare of his Chinese subjects and with the economic rehabilitation of the territory that he hoped to rule.
Khubilai promoted the building of roads, on either side of which “willows and other trees [had] been planted so that the shadow of the trees [fell] upon the road.” In addition, he established postal stations, which, though originally designed to transmit and deliver official mail, also served to facilitate trade.

Mongolia - Khubilai Khan and the Yuan Dynasty, 1261-1368
A major development was Khubilai's establishment in 1260 of a winter capital at what is now Beijing but was then called Dadu ("great capital," also called Khanbalik--Marco Polo's Cambaluc) which shifted the political center of the Mongol empire south into China and increased Chinese influence.
Khubilai, who took the Chinese-style reign title Zhiyuan ("the greatest of the Yuan"), proved himself to be one of the most able rulers of imperial China.

 Khubilai Khan History Summary
Khubilai Khan (or Qubilai Qan), founder of the Yuan dynasty (1279–1368), as the Mongol khanate of China became known, was the last ruler of Mongol China to be born on the steppe.
Khubilai, then in his mid-thirties, became his brother's viceroy in China, a role he performed very successfully with the help of a variety of advisers savvy in local administrative tradition.
Khubilai now had unrestricted control in Mongol China and in most of Mongolia, including the old Mongol imperial capital of Karakorum, although his rule was never unchallenged in Inner Asia.

 Khubilai's Successors - History Forum
The last years of Khubilai's reign were clouded by the failure of his foreign adventures, by his ill-health and above all by the problem of succession.
Khubilai's original choice of successor was his son, Zhenjin, but Zhenjin died in 1285.
After Khubilai's death, Zhenjin's son, Temür, was acclaimed Khaghan and reigned as the emperor Chengzong from 1294 to 1307.

Khubilai was born on September 23, 1215 CE, the same year that Chingis Khan conquered Beijing.
Khubilai also recruited advisors that were not Chinese, for he welcomed those men that had the knowledge that could help him rule his domain in Hsing-chou.
It is known that Chabi and Khubilai got married just before the year 1240 CE since her first son was born that year, but nothing else is known about her life in the period between 1240 CE and Khubilais succession as Khaghan in the year of 1260 CE.

 The Mongols in World History | Asia Topics in World History
Notwithstanding the aspects of their rule that were certainly negative for China, the Mongols did initiate many policies — especially under the rule of Khubilai Khan — that supported and helped the Chinese economy, as well as social and political life in China.
In order to ingratiate himself with Confucian China, for example, Khubilai restored the rituals at court — the music and dance rituals that were such an integral part of the Confucian ideology.
Khubilai also set up institutions to rule China that were very familiar to the Chinese, adapting or borrowing wholesale many of the traditional governmental institutions of China.

Khubilai agreed all this was impossible for a king.
Although it did not fully address all the issues raised, Khubilai and Phagspa agreed to this conciliatory compromise, and a Hevajra initiation was given to the Mongolian ruler and twenty-four of his associates.
Khubilai relented and had the final proclamation changed to read, “It is the wish of both the Preceptor and the Protector that each and every Dharma system should develop on its own,” thus granting a degree of freedom to the various other sects in Tibet.

 The Mongols in World History | Asia Topics in World History
Khubilai Khan was an important transitional figure in Mongol history, in particular because he sought to rule — and not merely conquer — the vast domains that the Mongols had subjugated.
This is not to say that Khubilai did not persist in efforts at military expansionism — indeed, he successfully brought South China under his control in 1279.
Two key figures closely related to Khubilai Khan include Chabi, his second principal wife, and the Tibetan monk 'Phags-pa lama, who was his close friend and adviser.

Khubilai Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan, had successfully continued his grandfather’s incredible legacy for some time and was determined to conquer Japan – the one country that refused to bow to him.
Columbia University’s Professor Morris Rossabi (author of Khubilai Khan: His Life and Times) and University of Wisconsin History Professor David Morgan (author of The Mongol Empire and Its Legacy) point out some of the emperor’s many achievements.
Khubilai had two new cities built – Ta Tu (modern-day Beijing) and Shang-Tu (his new capital, also known as Xanadu) – as well as the Grand Canal.

Khubilai's long silence was finally broken by his question, "Aren't you afraid to come to this huge country?" Anige answered, "The sage regards people in all directions as his sons.
Khubilai obviously believed that the sudden sickness of his principal court artist was caused by poisoning, presumably by those jealous of Anige's success.

Still, if you need a book on the life of Khubilai Khan which is clearly written and avoids jargon---though the author does tend to insert a few too many Mongol and Chinese terms which are useless to lay readers---you could do worse than obtain this volume, probably the premier work on the subject in English.
Khubilai Khan was the first of the Mongol rulers to make the transition from nomadic conqueror of the steppes to effective ruler of a sedentary society.
His reign in China witnessed the construction of a capital city, the development of a new legal code, and court patronage of the arts, science, and medicine.
