This seems strange set on the middle of a road intersection Given all the other similar structures in the city you could give it a miss but if you are nearby it is worth a look and a piccy or two

Right across the street from the JW Marriott, this gate is worth seeing but nothing else to commend it in the area.

One of the two largest gates in Seoul. It has a stone archway in the retaining wall linked to the city wall and a wooden pavillion was constructed on it. The metro station is very close by.

This gate is beautiful. Not much more to say actually. It is well preserved and looks good. But surrounded by modern buildings. Well worth passing by and take some pics of it.

other goods while prices are relatively low. The night

particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a
place where you can literally shop until you drop. If
