Zhonghua Gate. Some of the original 13 Ming city gates remain, including the Zhonghua Gate in the south and the Centre Gate (Zhōngyāng Mén) in the north. The city gates were heavily fortified; Zhonghua Gate has four rows of gates, making it almost impregnable, and could house a garrison of 3000 soldiers in vaults in the front gate building. Today some of these vaults are used as souvenir shops.
