In Nanjing, the most storytable city gate is the Zhonghua Gate. There are three cities in the Zhonghuamen Castle, four arches and 27 Tibetan soldiers. In the ancient wars, it played a very important role in the material reserve and the design of the military source, and enjoyed the title of the first city in the world. This time I came back here and stepped on the bricks that have been vicissitudes for more than 600 years. I heard many stories about Zhu Yuanzhang, Shen Wansan and the cornucopia buried under the wall. It feels particularly interesting and interesting. Moreover, the story of Shen Sanwan has also been filmed into some film and television dramas, showing how legendary the story of the "God of Wealth" is.
Zhonghuamen, known as Jubaomen in the Ming Dynasty, is the south gate of the Ming Dynasty capital city. It is the largest castle-style gate in the 13 gates of the inner wall of the Ming Dynasty in Nanjing. It is the best preserved and most complicated ancient city in the world today. castle. The main building of the Zhonghua Gate City Gate is engraved with the words "Zhonghuamen", which was inscribed by the former Kuomintang leader Chiang Kai-shek. Zhu Yuanzhang of Ming Taizu listened to the suggestion of Zhu Sheng, "Growing grain and building a wall", and worried about the bureaucratic work of casting wall tiles. So he ordered the name of the manufacturer on each brick. The final quality system is estimated to be Ming Taizu. Zhu Yuanzhang was first implemented in the world. In the early years of the Ming Dynasty, the craftsmen did not want to lose their heads, and the life-saving emperor was killing people. Now you see, the names on these wall tiles are still faintly identifiable.
Zhonghuamen is one of the 13 Ming Dynasty capital city gates of Nanjing Mingcheng Wall. It was formerly known as Jubaomen. It is the largest existing city gate in China and the world's best preserved and most complicated fortress city. Its construction scale is second only to Tongjimen (now not in existence), is known as the "first city in the world". Zhonghua Gate has a strict layout and unique structure. It is an important material for studying ancient Chinese military facilities. It has an important position in military, historical, cultural, and urban construction history.
Zhonghuamen used to be Nantangguo Dujiang Ningfu and the Southern Song Dynasty accompanied the capital to the south gate of Kangfu City. During the 2nd to 8th year of the Ming Dynasty (1369-1375), it was expanded.
After the Ming Dynasty settled in Nanjing, the founding emperor Zhu Yuanzhang began to build Nanjing's urban defense system, mobilizing the nation's strength to build the city wall and the city gate, and built the Nanjing city wall into the largest city wall in the world at that time, and located in the Zhonghua Gate in the south of Nanjing City. It is the largest existing city gate in China and the most complicated city in the world.
The predecessor of Zhonghuamen was the south gate of Jiankangfucheng. It was expanded on the basis of it from 1369 to 1375. It was called Jubaomen. The name Jubaomen took more than 500 years and was changed to Zhonghuamen during the Republic of China in 1931.
Zhonghuamen is the representative of China's ancient city wall defense system. The city gate has three roads, and the city gates have double wooden doors and jacks that can be started up and down.
Nanjing Mingcheng Wall, including Zhonghuamen, has been included in the World Cultural Heritage Reserve List, which is one of the most attractive spots in Nanjing. The Old Gate East and the Old Gate West area are centered on the Zhonghua Gate. Since ancient times, it has been the bustling old city of Nanjing, with tourists gathering every day.
There are 27 Tibetan soldiers in this gate, which can accommodate up to 3,000 soldiers. It is arguably one of the most difficult gates in China. It took 21 years before and after the construction of the city gate, using giant stones as the foundation of the city gate, not falling for more than 600 years.
