A little small, interesting; pls go in the dayWorth a stop by if you’re visiting Ximending or Taipei Main Station as they’re nearby, but it is a bit small, so don’t just go there just to see it. Takes about 15-20mins, and its history interesting if you like these kind of things. But do go in the day or at least when there is some day light. Or you’ll have to strain with your handphone torch to read the information at night like me, which was not the most ideal. XD the lighting is minimal so does not illuminate all the words well. Do rmb to look up when you are at the centre of the gate! There is a bagua (八卦) with some words between the ceiling planks, but we could not make out what they are.
Historic GateThe North Gate is the only Qing era gate still in its original place. Set by a very busy road not an overwhelming site, but interesting.

A Small Piece Of HistoryA small building which appears at first to be oddly placed in the midst of a very busy section of roadway. While it is not itself named, there are plaques and map references indicating this oddity"as being the North Gate of the original Taipei City Wall. The old wooden doors look as if they are original, adding to the character of this historical building.

Vermillion-colored gate in the middle of bustling trafficLocated at the intersection of Zhongziao West Rd. and Bo'ai Rd. in the Zhongzheng District, this is one of the four remaining city gates. Built in 1884 during the Qing Dynasty, it was once part of a system of walls and gates that were mostly torn down by the Japanese to facilitate military movement. Standing in the middle of bustling traffic, its vermilion facade resembles a fort with classical elegance. I would not go out of my way to see it, but if you are in the area, take a photo or two.
UnderwhelmingPerhaps the location surrounded by main arteries full of traffic, or the diminutive size given the tall buildings backdrop, I found the site of limited interest, in spite of the historic importance.
