Chastity and Obedience Gate (Chun Cheng Men)
The Northern Gate , Gate of Divine Might would be the Gate Tutor of the Dragon Emperor, (Sir)
Reginald Flemming Johnston would take to enter the Palace and proceed to the Hall of Bringing-
Forth of Blessings for his early afternoon appointment, the teaching of Pu Yi. Every afternoon,
around 1:30 PM he would arrive, most often on horseback at the outer Gate. Tie-ing his horse at one
of the available white marble poles with ritual stepping-off stone, as only the Emperor was allowed to ride on horse-back within the Forbidden City), the Tutor would always be accompanied by one or more courtiers, through the inner Chun Cheng Gate and Palace Garden, to be taken to the teaching Palace.
