Gate of compassion and tranquility

Gate of compassion and tranquility (Cining men)

The door of compassion and tranquility is in the western annexes of the inner courtyard. Very nice classical style building, it is guarded by two bronze animals. Three marble staircases allow one to enter. Although pretty and properly proportioned, the roof is quite classic.
