Que tower ( English pronounce = chur ) 闕
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Que_(tower)

Que is a freestanding gate tower in traditional Chinese architecture. First developed in the Zhou Dynasty ( 1046 BC–256 BC ) , que towers were used to form ceremonial gateways to tombs, palaces and temples throughout China.

A Que stone carving relic form Han dynasty ( 206 BC–220 AD ), placed in Three Gorges Musium, Chongqing city.
http://www.3gmuseum.cn/article.asp?3-13-980



..

阙的设置。最初只有天子才有资格设置阙,成为宫阙,僭越之后,阙大量用于各种场所,不仅宫殿前设阙,城门外、寺庙前、陵墓道两旁都设置阙,成为宫阙、城阙、庙阙、墓阙。甚至衙署和大门前都可以设置阙。

The use of que gateways reached its peak during the Han Dynasty, the free-standing towers were placed in pairs in front of the entrances to the palaces, temples, and government buildings of the period .

I don't know the rules of preservations in China and generally that of the conservation of architecture, but most buildings of this thread look suspiciously like reconstructions. Wood does not age well, granted, but even in the authentic structures, the interventions seem to be beyond the scientific limits. Also some links don't work and you need to add dates to the buildings. Don't get me wrong, but after the cultural revolution in China, little survived.
