This is the parade entrance into Kremlin, reserved for the President and high-ranking officials. It faces Red square and the Intercession cathedral.

It was completed in the end of the XV century as was the rest of Kremlin, designed by Pietro Antonio Solari. In 1624 it was topped by the large green spire as the rest of the towers under direction of Ogurtsov and the English Galloway. The first clock was installed at the same time. The current clock dates from 1851. The tower is 60m tall.
