Sungnyemun (Korean: ìˆë¡€ë¬¸; Hanja(Chinese character): å´‡ç¦®é–€; means "Gate of Respecting Propriety") or Namdaemun(Korean; ë‚¨ëŒ€ë¬¸, means "The Great South Gate") is a gate of Seoul City Walls located in the heart of Seoul This gate was regarded as one of the most iconic Korean landmarks. Until February 10th, Sungnyemun had been the oldest wood-built structure remaining in Seoul. The construction of this gate began in 1395 during the fourth year of the reign of King Taejo of Joseon and was finished in 1398. The gate had been off-limits to the public since Japanese colonial authorities built an electric tramway nearby in 1907. The gate was repaired in the early 1960s, and again in 2005, when the Seoul City Government decided to open the gate to the Public. The Gate was entitled 'Korean National Treasure No. 1' in 1962.
