  Big Lions
by filipdebont

So once you have crossed the Golden Stream via one of the Marble bridges you can cross the big courtyard. Like this you arrive just in front of the big, the very impressive Supreme Harmony Gate (Taihemen).

In front of this Supreme Harmony Gate you can see two bronze Lions. These big Lions symbolise the power of the Empire.
