Great steel gate design

Walking up the entrance road to Aletheia University in Danshui in the north of Taiwan I discovered these great steel gates. The steel gates are the back entrance to the Grand Chapel on the university campus which was built in 1997. The Chapel has since become the landmark of the university campus.
