  • Located above a stream this is the Water Gate for Hwaseong Fortress. Very picturesque and a good place to stop on the curcuit of the fortress walls. Not much water in the stream when we were there.  more »
  • It's a very nice looking gate. I would have liked it if there would have been more water running underneeth it.  more »
