Gate of loyal obedience

The door of loyal obedience is found in the imperial gardens. It is the northern gate of the Imperial Garden (Yu Huayuan), the northern end of the inner palaces. After the door of loyal obedience one arrives at the door of the divine feat (men Shenwu), which leads to the outside of the palace. This door serves as a bridge between the inner courtyard (on the North side) and the outside. It was generally closed except for special occasions. The gate of loyal obedience was first built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and was originally named the gate of earthly tranquility (Kunning men).
