Gate of manifest vertue

During the doorway of the correct conduct, the door of manifesting virtue is east of the gate of supreme harmony. During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the door of manifest virtue was the place where the emperor summoned ministers to discuss matters when he wanted to speak outside the formal protocol. It is here that the offices of the Grand Secretariat have been established. Under the Qing (1644-1911), it was the night guard for the imperial guards.

This gate was originally called "Northeast corner gate" (Dong jiao men), then under the Ming it was named the "Gate of the extension of the Administration" (Hongzheng men). She received the current name of Qing rulers (1644-1911).
