Three-entrance Gate, stone, Le - Nguyen dynasties, late 18th – early 19th centuries AD., Hai Phong province.

A "three-entrance gate" is a traditional Vietnamese architectural type. Other types include communal house, temples, pagodas, and tombs. This is part of a tomb created in the Le-Nguyen dynasties which was made of four stone columns. The middle two are taller than the outer two. The beam, which rests on the four columns, is decorated with motifs, including “Eight fairies”, the “Longevity” character, four sacred animals, and floral and faunal patterns.
