Main Gate OF Gyeongbok Palace Gwanghwamun


On the way to Insadong-gil, we passed by Gwanghwamun. Located at Seoul Jongnogu, Gwanghwamun is the main and largest entrance to Gyeongbok Palace of Joseon Dynasty.

As a landmark and historical symbol, Gwanghwamun was built in 1935. Gwanghwamun is a double-roofed fortress with three arched doors. During Korean War, Gwanghwamun was damaged critically

The latest reconstruction of Gwanghwamun was done in 2006. The wooden structure of Gwanghwamun was rebuilt and the stone base was replaced with concrete. The restoration of Gwanghwamun was completed and opened to public in 2010.

Nearby landmarks include Somerset Palace Hotel, Central Government Complex, Sejong Cultural Centre, US Embassy and Japanese Embassy. The nearest subway station is Gyeongbokgung Station.
