The Chaotianmen Square is located where the Yangtze River joins the Jialing in the northeast of Chongqing. The Chaotianmen Gate was first built in 314 B.C. and was rebuilt in the early Ming Dynasty. Known as the “Magnififent Pass to Ancient Yu” the gate was the largest among the 17 gates among Chongqing’s old city walls. It was also known as Chaotianmen, or the Gate of Paying Tribute to Heaven, because it was the place where local officials received the imperial decrees. The Chaotianmen Square was built near the Chaotian Gate in 1997. The 80,000-square-meter square is an excellent place to enjoy viewing the mergence of the two rivers and the beautiful scenery among the banks of the rivers.
