Sungnyemun Gate, one of the original gates of the Fortress Wall of Seoul, is an important landmark in the city. Officially known as the Sungnyemun, this gate dates back to 1398 and was rebuilt in the 1440s. Though it was one of the oldest wooden gates in Seoul, it was heavily damaged in the fire of 2008. Today it has been restored to its original glory where a pagoda-style roof and a stone archway make for a stunning structure. Consider stopping by for some time while exploring Seoul here.
