"Meridian Gate" Nanjing Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Nanjing Things to Do: 302 reviews and 651 photos

The Meridian Gate was the front gate into the Ming Imperial Palace. It took a 'U' shape with double watchtowers on the front and three gates in the middle. On the curved and southern part there were another two gates, one facing east and the other facing west. The double watchtowers on the wall have been destroyed and the only remains of the gate, today, are its five arch gates.
