The inside (back) of Gwanghwamun, the main entry gate.
The Korean War (1950–53) completely destroyed the wooden structure of Gwanghwamun, the main entry gate, and its stone base lay in complete disrepair and neglect. Gwanghwamun underwent a major restoration project from December 2006 to August 2010. The gate was moved to its original location and reconstructed in wood. It was rotated to align the gate with the main north-south axis of Gyeongbokgung Palace.
