Tour Description

  1. The Qianmen, also known as Zhengyangmen, was formerly the front gate of the Imperial City, a part of the ancient city of Beijing. It stands at the south end of the Tiananmen Square precinct.

    First built in 1419, the gateway consisted of a gatehouse proper and an archery tower, which forms a large barbican. Today the archery tower and the gatehouse survive, incorporating some modern design elements. Its initial mud framework, in place for over half a century, was replaced with brick. At 42 meters high, the gatehouse was, and is, the tallest among all of the gates of Beijing.
