Yongdingmen (zh-stp |s= |t= |p=Yǒngdìngmén; Manchu: Enteheme toktoho duka) was the former front gate of the outer section of Beijing's old city wall. Originally built in 1553, it was torn down in the 1950s to make way for the new road system in Beijing. In 2005, a replica of Yongdingmen was erected at the site of the old city gate. This new gate, curiously, is disconnected from the original road leading towards the gate and into the city (see photograph below). Walking north from the gate a new park is being constructed as of July 2007.
