There was once a grand wall that surrounded Nanjing – once a Chinese capital city. Yet, with all that’s been going on in China during the 20th century the wall has seen a lot of wars and destruction, yet some still remains. Gate of China is probably your best chance to experience some of that grand history (Zhonghua Gate ; Chinese Gate ; 中华门 ; 中華門; Zhōnghuámén). A walking distance from the nearby Confucius temple, you’ll arrive at the southern gate massive 5km wall remains, which you could walk on to take you all the way to the eastern and north-eastern gates.
