The Shanmen (mountain gate) is also known as the Main Gate. Sik Sik Yuen’s Shanmen was built out of red granite in 1977 with a four-column and three gate layout. With four pillars to hold up the sky and auspicious lions crouching at the entrance, the gates are decorated with two plaques that titled with the words “Supreme Paradise” and “Sik Sik Yuen.” A pair of stone lions were originally placed in front of the Main Gate. In 2010, these lions were replaced with a pair of new bronze qilins that were made to resemble the qilins at the Forbidden City. In Taoist architecture, the three gate symbolizes transcendence from the three realms and entry to the lands of the gods and a place of tranquility.
