City Wall in Fuguishan Section begins at the semicircle tunnel entrance under the earth surface of Fuguishan Mountain and it quite seems like a winding path leading to a secluded spot; Qianhu Section is poetic and picturesque, with protective engineering connecting City wall gaps severely damaged in the flood season; Zhongshan Gate is slightly to the north of the former site of original Chaoyang Gate, and it is named after greeting to the sun for its location in the east of Nanjing City and it is a channel connecting the palace city within the City and the Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum outside the City. The Nationalist Government built up an avenue from Zhongshan Wharf to Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum in order to meet Sun Yat-sen’s coffin coming from Beijing, dismantled the barbican of original Chaoyang Gate, repaired and built three-hole arch brick gage and embedded the stone inscription of “Zhangshan Gate” on the door opening.
City Wall in Section from Taiping Gate to Guanghua Gate was an important city wall to protect the palace city and imperial city in the Ming Dynasty and therefore the whole City Wall was made from city wall bricks (also named “imperial brick” or “brick of tribute” to symbolize the “god-given imperial power”. The City Wall in this Section was build along the mountains and lakes, winding, turning, against Zhongshan and it seems solemn and grand.
