Along both sides of the gate were offices of Mongolian nobles, nine chief ministers and imperial guards. In the Qing dynasty, except for those who came to make urgent reports or had been summoned, not even princes or officials were allowed to enter. In order to ensure the safety of the emperor, the guards of princes and officials had to halt 20 paces from the steps.
