Zhonghua City Gate, Nanjing: 9 reviews and 15 photos
An excellent place to see fortifications is at Zhonghua Men in the far south, now bereft of its wall and isolated in the middle of a traffic island.
This colossal gate actually comprises four gates, one inside another, and its seven enclosures were designed to hold three thousend men in case of enemy attack, making it one of the biggest of its kind in China.
Today you can walk through the central archway and climb up two levels, passing arched recesses which are used for display. Up above there is a tremendous view of the gates with the city spread out beyond.
