Located at the very end of Yuzhong peninsular, overlooking the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers, surrounded by mountains on three sides, Chao Tian Men slopes down to the rivers on each side. Its name originates from a city gate that was built there in the early Ming Dynasty. The gate was so-called because it faced Nanjing, the capital at the time and where the Emperor lived.

In 1891, Chao Tian Men was opened as a trading port, but in 1927 the old city gate was pulled down to make way for the construction of the dock. Today the Chao Tian Men Passenger Transportation Dock and the newly built Chaotianmen Square are ideal places to view the charming river scenery and where the two rivers come together to form one.
