Reminiscent of a castle, Zhonghua Gate (Zhonghuamen Castle) has long served as a strategic protection against invaders. The best preserved gate in Nanjing, the ancient capital of China, stands as a monument to the architectural genius of the Ming dynasty. Explore the complex, 27-vault structure, known as the "treasure gate" because of the military provisions kept by the soldiers who lived here. Climb to the top of the wall to enjoy the cityscape of Nanjing under the glow of the red lanterns that line the aisles. You can take a guided tour to learn more about the history and construction of the gate.
