What was once the gate of the Suwon Hwaseong fortress, Paldalmun Gate sports views from the top of the wall. As you walk along National Treasure (number 402) you'll witness history dating back to 1794. The gate consists of two walls, one is crescent shaped and one provides additional protection. 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.

  • CY ( 20.12.26 ) This gate was one of the Suwon's landmark, and located in the center of big road. So we could not approach and view in detail. If on Haenggung trip, it was worth to pass by slowly...

  • It's really pretty much a gate with a roundabout surrounding it, walked around the gate but couldn't see any path to enter (?) the actual area. Four stars because there's lots of stalls/shops surrounding the gate, it's pretty much like a shopping district.
  • Quite cool to have a large round about around this gate. You can admire it even from a car. Nice illumination
