Marble archway, a memorial structure also called Shipaifang, was built in 1540 and is still in excellent condition. The Marble archway is 29 meters wide and supported by six marble pillars with beautiful relief carvings of dragons and clouds, lions and lotus flowers.

Marble archway was erected to promote feudal virtues or served as a symbol of meritorious deeds. The Sacred Path used to pass beneath the Marble Archway.
