Just a gate

First time, I passed by unnoticed. And, second time, I found the explication and stopped to take a picture. It is just a stone gate, and not really interesting.

the only remaining gate in Lukang
Sep 2016 • Solo
This gate happened to be 20 m from my guest house, Small Eye Backpacker, otherwise i probably would never have seen it. The gate was constructed in 1830 to keep invaders out, but hardly worth making a special trip to see it.

Lukang old town

The gate is a remnant of older times when the town would be closed at night for protection. Nothing special in itself, but the historical area is quite enjoyable with its paved lanes and lively markets. A special mention to Lukang inhabitants, so friendly and welcoming.

A gate to protect outsiders during the night

I couldn’t imagine this gate being the only means of defense from attacking people but there must not have been tremendous armies back then. I’m thinking more along the lines of closing the gate to keep out some thieves as we would close and lock our gate at night in our neighborhood. In any case it is historic and people were lining up to take a picture. Normally I’d wait to do the same but it didn’t seem that important.
