The architectural style of Dazhimen Railway Station, a landmark of old Hankou, certainly stands out among the modern buildings in Wuhan. The mansard roof is surrounded by four 20-meter-high towers, which are located at each of the four corners of the square building. At the top of each tower is a wrought iron streamline pyramid enclosed in a dark green metal cover; they are styled after the towers on the German Bavarian castles. "The magnificent arch faces the road, and there is a big chime clock in front of it," a local resident said, "And above the arch is a bronze eagle with its wings fully spread."
