Changli memorial archway

Located in front of Changli Road, west of Study Palace, was first constructed during the Ming Dynasty. It is 10 meters high, 10.9 meters wide, and has four pillars, three gates and three floors. The famous Tang Dynasty poet Han Yu used to be the prefectural governor here, so people built the archway to memorialize him by using his name Changli as the name of the archway.
