Royal Arch

Every city probably has a Chinatown, some better and bigger than others.
but not many have as massive and royal a gateway arch the new one over Somerset St in Ottawa
"It's the royal style arch and only  the capital city is entitled"

Oh, yes, it looks so much like the rooflines in the Imperial City in Beijing. If we ever get to visit Ottawa, I'll have to make a point of showing this to my husband. It's lovely!

what a cool arch. They have one similar at Epcot Center and I'm amazed at all the detail that goes into making this. Truly a work of art

I have been to quite a few Chinatown here in the US, but nothing as pretty and exquisite as this arch. You captured them beautifully!

That's fabulous! I had no idea they had such a thing - haven't been to Ottawa in years.

This is brand new. I think it was unveiled in October 2010
