Daehanmun Gate

Meaning "Seoul (originally Hanyang) will prosper," Daehanmun was established as the main gate following the establishment of the palace as the new center for the capital. Following expansion of the street, the gate became isolated in the middle of the busy road in 1968. Three years later, it was moved to its present location. In 2005 Daehanmun Gate was dismantled and rebuilt to its present form. Today visitors enjoy daily colorful guard/flag ceremonies.
