It is the largest brick built arch in the world. The arch was part of the imperial palace complex. The throne room—presumably under (…) the arch—was more than 30 m (110 ft) high and covered an area 24 m (80 ft) wide by 48 m (160 ft) long.
The top of the arch is about 1 meter thick while the walls at the base are up to 7 meters thick.
