Taipei

. City Gates Even though very little ancient architecture remains in Taipei, four of Taipei's five original city gates still stand. The city walls which surrounded the old city and the West Gate were demolished by the Japanese to make way for roads and railway lines. Of the four gates still standing, the Kuomintang renovated three of them in its effort to "sinicize" Taipei and converted them from the original southern Chinese architecture to northern Chinese palace style architecture, leaving only the '''North Gate''' ('''beimen''' 北門 or more formally '''Cheng'en men''' 承恩門) in its original Qing Dynasty splendour today. This gate sits forlornly in the traffic circle where the Zhonghua, Yanping and Boai roads meet. Do WikiPedia:Taipei Dmoz:Regional Asia Taiwan Localities Taipei City commons:台北市
