Painted panels depicting scenes of daily life are on the lintel of the semicircular porch.
 
Dragons and floral motifs encircle the front columns. Dragons also twist around the interior columns.
 
The entrance is blocked by a low bridge across the portal, presumably to prevent bad spirits from entering. Warrior statues flank the portal.
