Janganmun In Suwon Hwaseong

janganmun in Suwon Hwaseong

The Janganmun Gate was big

Shot at Suwon Hwaseong, fortress made by Joseon dynasty in Suwon, South Korea.

The huge gate in this photo is Janganmun. 'Jangan' means the capital and it was used when the royal family came from the capital, Seoul. A small figure with an umbrella was standing in front of the big gate.

Although this fortress is surrounded by the walls, the inside is also urbanized. It means that some people live in the fortress now. I wondered how I felt if I lived in the area which was regarded as a World heritage site.
