Front Archway

The majestic Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall archway stands 30 meters tall and 80 meters wide. The primary structure is made from white concrete, meant to resemble pure-white marble. The archway is comprised of 5 entryways, 6 pillars, and 11 roofs. This 5-6-11 configuration means that this archway is of the highest rank according to the traditional Chinese architectural classification system. The roof features layered dougong (bracket sets) and Chinese blue-glazed roof tiles.
