Description

One of the four main gates to the capital city of Seoul is Dongdaemun Gate. King Gojong constructed the current structure in 1869. As far back as 1396, there were imposing structures serving as gates on the site. For ornamental purposes only, the gate and connecting city wall were not constructed, as the lowland site of the main palace was not easy to defend from invaders.
