DONGDAEMUN GATE IN THE CITY OF SEOUL

MY SEOUL TRIP MAIN PAGE


4th June 2015 ~ The mission to explore Seoul started in the afternoon after we had taken a short nap in the hotel room. (Luckily, Mr. Thomas, the guesthouse's manager let us in as we arrived much earlier in the morning.)


In our attempt to find the nearest subway station, we accidentally found this historical site at the centre of busy roads in Dongdaemun. The Gate which was built in 1397 remained strong and proud despite the busy traffic around in this metropolitan city.



There was no access to get into the Gate so we just posed outside the premise.



Please CLICK on the picture for more information of the Dongdaemun Gate. I am just too lazy to retype.






There are many other gates (eight altogether according to Wikipedia) similar to this around the city and we managed to visit another one, also by accident, on the third day.

More story of Seoul coming after this.
