    Golden gate entrance to ballroom? The golden gate of the Palace of Versailles. It replaced the original gate that was built by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 1680s & torn down in the French Revolution. The 80m wrought iron gate is covered with 100,000 gold leaves to shape the beautiful fleur de lys, crowns, masks of Apollo, cornucopias and the crossed capital Ls representing the Sun King.
