Gwanghwamun - Review

This is one of the main gates of the Gyeongbokgung Palace. One of the most important pieces of architecture in Seoul, this gate is a constant reminder to some of the most illustrious phases of the history of the city.

Built during the Jonseon Dynasty, this gate has seen its fair share of mismanagement and disrepair. The government undertook restorations of this monument in 2010 after which it has been restored to its former glory.
