Sacred Road (Sacred Way)
A Sacred Road is always found in an imperial cemetery. The Sacred Road of the Ming Tombs is 7 kilometers long from the Memorial Stone Archway to the gate of Chang Ling. along the Sacred Road are Marble Archway, Great Palace Gate, Tablet Tower, Stone Statues and Dragon and Phoenix Gate. The Sacred Road is originally built for Chang Ling, Emperor Yong Le's Tomb, but since the other twelve tombs were also built in this area, either to the left or right of Chang Ling, the Sacred Road became the main road for all of the thirteen tombs. During the funeral ceremony, the deceased emperor was carried over the road. Today, most of the buildings are still standing here and telling us the vicissitude of Ming and Qing Dynasties.
