About Taihe Gate

Taihe Gate is the main gate of the palace outside the Forbidden City. It was built in the Yongle years of the Ming dynasty, known as Fengtian Gate. In the Jiajing years, it was renamed the Emperor's Gate, and renamed again as Taihe Gate after the Qing took the throne. Taihe Gate is a very high status gate in ancient China, as one of the five gates of the emperor. Inside it, there is the Taihe Hall, commonly known as the "Throne Hall." The current Taihe Gate was rebuilt after the fire in the Guangxu years of the Qing dynasty. It is seated on a base of white marble. A pair of bronze lions on the left and right of the gate were cast in the Ming dynasty. These are very large bronze lions, even for the Forbidden City.
