The Friendship Archway is an intricate paifang (traditional style of Chinese architectural arch) spanning H Street and was erected to celebrate friendship with Washington’s sister city of Beijing. It is one of the largest ceremonial arches outside of China, featuring seven roofs covered in 7000 tiles and 284 dragons (272 painted and 12 carved) in the style of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
