The Ying'en Gate Tower--Representative of the City

Night View around the Ying'en Gate Tower

The firm colossal and grand Ying'en Gate Tower, which once had a circling wall of 4,300 meters long connecting Daojia Mountain, Nancheng District, Bomeng Mountain, the East gate and North gate to protect Dongguan City, was built in the Hongwu period of the Ming Dynasty. Currently, the still-standing Ying'en Gate Tower with its red walls, green tiles, upturned eaves and bucket arches is very grand. Its preserved foundation built in the Ming Dynasty is enormously precious. The Ying'en Gate Tower has always been the symbol of the ancient city of Dongguan and an important representative of this famous historical and cultural city, while the Culture Square is the presentation of the new century, new atmosphere and new Dongguan. This relic, matching with modern cultural facilities, has some historical and appreciative values.
