Guangwu Great Wall in China's Shanxi completes repair work

Photo taken on Dec. 5, 2017 shows the site of an arch door on the Guangwu Great Wall section built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in Shanyin County, north China's Shanxi Province. The arch door on the Great Wall was reduced to ruins after a strong gale in October last year. Now the reinforcements and repair work have been completed on the arch door site. The archway had been the remains of a former watchtower on the Guangwu Great Wall. It was called the "Moon Gate" by Great Wall aficionados due to its round shape. (Xinhua/Zhan Yan)
