(3.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Zhonghua Gate (Zhonghuamen Castle) and other Nanjing attractions using our handy Nanjing trip itinerary planner.

  • 就是一个具有历史意义的地方,去的人还特别多,就是去拍照,请选择好去的时间,错开高峰期。适合家人 老人 小孩儿前往,外边有吃的 
  • Great gate when it's light up at night. It's a small entrance with a fee. Takes no time at all to walk through the entrance and the gates within. 
  • It's clean and accessable, but not for disabled access. 50 RMB per person seemed a bit step, as it's not as impressive as other walls around China.

  • 中华门,建于1366年明太祖朱元璋建都期间,是南京古城的正南门,是南京的标志性象征建筑之一。 城堡是中国现存最大的城堡式瓮城,也被认为是世界上保存最完好、结构最复杂的古城堡,被中国国务院列为中国全国重点保护文物。 原名聚宝门,1931年改名“中华门”,并由当时的中国领袖蒋中正所题。
  • If you just take photos of Zhonghua gate signs, but not this feature any decent pay and free of charge.
