Look for the names of all the people who helped in building the gate inscribed on the wall. The site sits among the bustle of busy streets and alleys, so you can go shopping or grab a bite.

  • You can visit the Hwaseong Fortress from this gate. The entrance fee is super cheap and visiting during the end of winter was a good choice. A great place for a simple hike and appreciating the historical values of this world heritage.
  • The gate is nice to look at and take photos of. The area around it is quaint with some decent spots to eat and shop. However, if you are staying in Seoul, I wouldn't suggest making a trip out here to visit.
