Originally, Nanjing had 13 gates in its city walls.  The names of these gates have been changed over time and many additional gates were added begining in the Qing dynasty and extending to the present.  In the 20th century, many of the gates were torn down to help ease traffic flows.  Today only two of the original 13 gates are still standing along with parts of a third.
