Uncared-for old memorial arch in ruins

A memorial archway gate established in 1737 has fallen into disrepair due to a lack of maintenance in Huichang county, Ganzhou city, East China's Jiangxi province. The archway gate is embellished with elaborate carvings and has two imposing stone lions on its front side. It has high historical and ornamental value. In days past, such structures were erected to honor filial piety and chastity in the past. [Photo/China News Service]
