Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, Part I: Paldalmun, The Trademark of Suwon Paldal-gu

The time collides each other during a festivity in the Heart of Gyeonggi Province.
Paldalmun (Hanja: 八達門) is the southern gate of Hwaseong Fortress, designated Korean Republic National Treasure No. 402. It is located at 780 Jeongjo Avenue (Paldalmun Rotary), Paldallo 2-ga 132-5 beonji, Suwon Paldal-gu, Gyeonggi Province. This gate is a trademark for Suwon Paldal-gu.

A crescent shaped 'ongseong' (defensive secondary wall to prevent the main gate from being broken down with logs) is built on the outside of the door. On the right wall of the gate is a nameplate which contains the names of the people involved in the construction of the gate. The Paldalmun is unique in that it is separated from the rest of the gates, and located in the middle of Paldalmun Rotary. The reason for this is because commerce took roots around the gates before its reconstruction, making it impossible to build in that area.


Koreans: Ahem. Do you have Another Versions for Hayate Yagami at Paldalmun?
HK and B: Aye. We have 'em.
