Gate of spiritual cultivation (Yangxing men)
Gate of spiritual cultivation
The Gate of spiritual cultivation leads to the pavilion of the same name. It is relatively large, with a facade of 5 bays whose two extremes are walled. The pediment is as often painted with bright colors based on blue. This door is especially remarkable for the two bronze lions that are lying down. We recognize that they are lions and not lionesses by the fact that they have a globe under their feet.
To access this door, you have to take one of the three stairs leading to it.
