Long Description:
The Gate of the Golden Sun, or Zhao Yang Men, marks the entrance to the China Pavilion at Epcot. It is modeled after the gate at the emperor's summer palace in Beijing. Passing through the gate takes you to an imperial prayer temple, where the emperor would go to pray for a good harvest. The attention to detail is spectacular, as are the rest of the buildings in the area.
