This impressive gate looks even better when lit up at night. Locals flock to the grounds outside to chat and dance - the atmosphere is fantastic.

Local people feathering here, dancing traditionally, chatting all interesting staff they saw, and see what others were doing. You may also join them to dance, they would show you how. Photographs can go there to take some pics. 拥有百年历史,经历战乱不倒,其大小可称得上小天安门。 当地群众聚集在那里唱歌跳舞,很有民俗风味。可以加入他们,他们会很高兴,也会教你如何跳
