It was both a rampart and art architecture. The place is reliable location for historians and military experts afterwards.

Now on Tran Phu Street, the gate was first strengthened with stones in 1825 by King Minh Mang, the second emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945). It was repaired again in 1961 but was almost completely destroyed by U.S. bombs during the Vietnam – American War.
