We passed by this Pungnammun gate along the way to Nambu market.

Monumental structure which gave this city a different feel to it, a pivotal one.
Historical site which was re-built in 1768.
Impressive that it's still standing tall after such a long period time passage.

You will definitely pass by Pungnammun when you are walking from the Hanok Village/Jeondong Catholic Church to Nambu Market. It offers a different view in the day and night. In the day it looks traditional, and at night it's lit up and looks really beautiful!

This can be found near the Nambu market. Personally, I think it makes a great photo backdrop but nothing more. However, do take note it is not allowed to go up the stairs to the gate wall.

standing in the middle of the urban spraw, you'll find this old gate. Found a really awesome pancake shop just opposite to admire the gate and chow down on sweet pancakes.

We stopped by PungnamMun on a recent visit to Jeonju. This is the historic south gate of Jeonju and is located in an interesting part of this city with many nearby shops to check out. This gate rates a great photo opportunity. Check it out.

This castle gate and some Jeonju's attraction located near each other. PungnamMun is South gate of Jeonju. This gate was beautiful and represented Joesun's architecture. But this gate was not bigger than I guess, and couldn't enter inside. I could walking only surroundings.

it's one of Jeonju's historical attractions located within just a walking distance from the Hanok Village.Looks imposing but resembles the Namdaemun gate in Seoul as far as I am concerned.

Previously there were four main gates. Only one of them is still standing - the south gate. It is very easy to visit it after visiting the hanok village as it is only a short walk around. Currently there is a market surrounding the gate and it is a good introduction to a Korean market.
