As one of the old Chinese gates to the city, Pungnammun is a relic of Jeonju's history. It is just on an island in the middle of the road, but it becomes a lot more scenic at night when it is illuminated.

It is located in front of south gate market. I am not sure if you can go inside. No need to visit here only for this gate.

You will definitely pass by Pungnammun when you are walking from the Hanok Village/Jeondong Catholic Church to Nambu Market. It offers a different view in the day and night. In the day it looks traditional, and at night it's lit up and looks really beautiful!

I didn't plan to visit Pungnammum at all. On the way back from dinner, I just walked aimlessly around before going back to the village, and saw this ancient monument not far away. It was pretty when lit up. I went to have a look...More
