This is a futuristic entrance of East Sheshan Mountain Park and looks magnificent. Three arches stand in parallel, with the middle one higher than the two on either side.

They resemble the Chinese character for "mountain". As Lansun Mountain is another name of Sheshan Mountain, the three parallel arches are like three orchid bamboo roots just breaking ground. in addition, white orchid is the city flower of Shanghai, so the gate looks like three white orchid flowers.
