The replica is one third the size of the real Eiffel Tower and is located in the Tianducheng residential area in the outskirts of Hangzhou, where rows of European-style houses also have been built. The replica created worldwide debates when it was featured on Reuters in Sept earlier this year.

The 108-meter steel structure is the second-largest Eiffel Tower replica in the world after the 165-meter-high tower in Las Vegas in the United States.
