Pungnammun Gate

Jeonju, Korea

Pungnammun, the only surviving city gate of Jeonju's original four, was first built in the late 14th century as part of the original city wall. Damaged in the Japanese invasions of 1592-1598, it was rebuilt in 1768 and restored in 1978. The gate, whose fortifications can be compared to Hwaseong Fortress , is located just west of Hanok village.
