The Great South Gate Of Seoul Sungnyemun


Originally built in 1398, Sungnyemun is located nearby Namdaemun Market.

Sungnyemun is one of the main gates in Seoul during the Joseon Dynasty. The location of the Sungnyemun is at the southern part of Seoul. It is commonly known as Namdaemun which means "Great South Gate".

The construction of Sungnyemun was completed during the 7th year of King Taejo's reign. Sungnyemun is a three stories high castle. The ground level of the Sungnyemun was built of stone and the other two levels were built of wood.

Unfortunately, Sungnyemun was burnt down on February 10, 2008. I will write more in depth about Sangnyemun in the next blog post.
