Zhenyuan Ancient Town, located Guizhou Province.
http://www.lvwo.com/bbs/viewthread.p...e%3D1#pid87025

镇远隶属贵州省黔东南苗族侗族自治州,位于舞阳河畔,四周皆山。河水蜿蜒,以“S”形穿城而过,北岸为旧府城,南岸为旧卫城,远观颇似太极图。两城池皆为明代所建,现尚存部分城墙和城门。城内外古建筑、传统民居、历史码头数量颇多。城东的青龙洞,是一组规模极其宏大的明清宗教建筑群,其间既有佛教寺庙,又有道教宫观和儒家祠庙,三教合一,蔚为壮观.

Que tower ( English pronounce = chur ) 闕
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Que_(tower)

Que is a freestanding gate tower in traditional Chinese architecture. First developed in the Zhou Dynasty ( 1046 BC–256 BC ) , que towers were used to form ceremonial gateways to tombs, palaces and temples throughout China.

A Que stone carving relic form Han dynasty ( 206 BC–220 AD ), placed in Three Gorges Musium, Chongqing city.
http://www.3gmuseum.cn/article.asp?3-13-980



..

阙的设置。最初只有天子才有资格设置阙,成为宫阙,僭越之后,阙大量用于各种场所,不仅宫殿前设阙,城门外、寺庙前、陵墓道两旁都设置阙,成为宫阙、城阙、庙阙、墓阙。甚至衙署和大门前都可以设置阙。

The use of que gateways reached its peak during the Han Dynasty, the free-standing towers were placed in pairs in front of the entrances to the palaces, temples, and government buildings of the period .
