Chengtian gate gate tower 承天门 (463)
Zhejiang Province

“承天之门”——承天门:

      城门名称是沿用唐代皇城正门的旧称,寓意“奉天承运、受命于天”。城楼基座是汉白玉的须弥座,在十余米高的墩台上,建成重檐歇山顶的大殿,上覆盖黄琉璃瓦。城楼东西宽九间,南北进深五间,“九五”这个数字暗示“帝王九五之尊”。城楼上共有60根朱漆大柱整齐排列,代表天干地支,以示江山永固,城楼上南北两面各有36扇红木六棱环格扇门,花纹绚丽多姿,图案古朴典雅。在晴朗的天宇下,城楼气势恢宏、金光闪烁,尽现皇宫禁城的壮丽辉煌。

      在殿宇正脊两端,有龙头形正吻,吻的背面上插着扇形的剑把,据说是为了防止好吞的螭吻(龙的九子)逃走,以保宫殿平安。大殿垂脊装饰,有骑凤仙人,龙(龙的三子)、凤凰、狮子、天马、海马、狻猊、押鱼、獬豸、斗年等九种栩栩如生小兽镇物,传说这是“九脊封十龙”,表示每天有十条龙守护宫殿。
