The north gate of Hwaseong is a major entrance to the royal walled city. With an encompassing tower and double walled gates, Janganmun demonstrates the resources and manpower devoted to construct the whole structure. A photogenic spot when meandering around the UNESCO site.

There is Chang'an Gate and the fortress near the Palace, and you may do sightseeing for free. Chang'an Gate is the north gate of Hwaseong City, but it is actually the main gate of the entire Hwaseong City. It is also the largest gate in Korea.

I like climbing up there and enjoy the streetscape of Suwon there!

You can walk thru and around this impressive example of late 18th century fortifications. There are cannons, quarters, archery slots, and lots of stonework. I've walked this section of the wall twice and each time stopped and marvel at the construction. Very cool architecture, aand would have been very difficult to attack.

This is another gate to the fortress. I personally preferred Padalmun but this was nice and we took several photos. Just outside of it many buses got to the Suwon train station at all times. It was convenient as a last stop for us.

It’s a scenic gate with a beautiful ceiling inside. Grab a coffee just inside the gate and enjoy the contrast of old and new Korea.

Great to see as part of the walls walk. Start at the Palace and go counter clockwise. The round-trip us about 6km and takes 2-3 hours with stops.

This is the northern and main gate to Hwaseong fortress. An impressive gate and associated pavilion and watch towers. Part of the 5km circuit of the fortress walls.

The gate looks quite impressive from both the inside as the outside of the walls, although I have to say I liked the Paldalmun gate more.

After passing this gate, you can get inside of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress and reach Hwaseong Hanggung Palace.
I guess this gate is bigger than any other gates in Seoul. It's good to visit and learn history & architecture.
- Connected to Hwahongmun(Buksumun) to the east.
- Walking through the wall outside is also nice.
- It's a rare case to build the main gate on the north. That's because the king had visited from the north.

Janganmun Gate is part of the Suwon city wall that travelers could start here to walk around the wall to have a look of the city.
