Zhonghua City Gate

Zhonghua City Gate Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
Zhonghua City Gate, means Chinese gate, is the best preserved Chinese ancient castle, and the biggest and most splendid city gate of Nanjing city wall.

The gate was built for twenty years from 1366 to 1386. The gate, originally called the "Gate of Gathering Treasure" carries a legend from the time of its creation in the early Ming Dynasty.

According to the legend, when Zhu Yuanzhang, the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), had the gate built, the ground kept sinking. The gate collapsed again and again. It was not until a treasure bowl was buried under the gate that it stood firm. In 1931, to commemorate the revolution of 1911 and the Republic of China (1919-1949) that emerged as a result, the Gate of Gathering Treasure was renamed Zhonghua Gate.

The whole structure was built with huge bricks and special cement which is extraordinarily strong. The delicately designed gate has four archways, and three trap cities which were the enclosed vacant lots between the archways.
