Korea: Heunginjimun and Hanyangdoseong

This is the old East Gate, now commonly called Dongdaemun ("Great East Gate"), but formally called Heunginjimun ("Gate of Rising Benevolence").


Across the street, you can walk along Hanyangdoseong, the city wall (built when Seoul was called Hanyang, and when the city was much smaller). 

This is the side of the wall that you walk along.




The wall climbs up, and you can get a good view of the city, including this view of Namsan Tower in the distance.


Someone was flying a kite.
