Fortune Gate – Travel Thursday

Fortune Gate, originally uploaded by anthonli.

The Chinese culture has many deep influences in Vietnam.
This is the ancient Vietnamese capital of Hoa Lu in Ninh Binh Province. Here you see the architects employing the use of Feng Shui. This “fortune gate” is not an actual gate, but a symbolic structure to keep the “winds of disharmony” out of the premise.
