Legend has it that people who walk through a Bermuda Moongate, especially newlyweds or honeymooners are blessed with good luck!
The first moongate was brought over by a sea captain from China in 1860. It has since been adopted as a national symbol of Bermuda. The Bermudian version is always built with local limestone like many homes, which is very heavy, but many fell during the 2003 hurricane Fabian. The Chinese version is wooden and easier to export.
Many can be found as entrances to many private homes and are also scattered in public places all over the island.
