  • 值得现场参观!只有站上城墙才能体会当年的威武雄壮。藏兵洞配合瓮中捉鳖,跑马上道签字版城砖,记载了那一段历史。内有书店一枚,雅致洁静。 
  • Stacked up one dzutsumi put it. There are steeped in the toil of the people at that time. Go up the stairs at such a thought. Standing in the middle of the gate, looking around slowly. Where once the game "warriors" in terms of the landscape itself. On the Tower on the left and right spread like wings that's exactly what. Kick in the gate but forgot the name of crossbow and weapons are exhibited. If we turn our eyes around the pretty white houses reach the eyes. This House, according to the Japan army would be built after the invasion. Touch and feel the stability stance. China gate admission is fifty Yuan. This price is not expensive for people who are interested in history. But not interested in history would be expensive and tourism orientation.

  • 中華門位於夫子廟旁邊, 遊客可以一同遊覽。 中華門上面是寬寬大大的城牆, 保存得很好,基本上沒怎被破壞過, 望下去的風景很不錯。

  • 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.
