Daizong Archway

Daizong Archway is the starting point for climbing Mount Tai, which is located on the south of Red Gate Road.

Daizong Archway

It was established in the reign of Emperor Longqing (1567-1572) of the Ming dynasty, and was rebuilt in the eighth year (1730) of Yongzhen in the Qing dynasty. It is a stone lane with four support pillars and three gates, impressive in its boldness and simplicity.

Three golden Chinese characters meaning "Daizong Archway" welcome visitors, and the two steles standing in front record details of the reconstruction of the Archway of Mount Tai.
