We passed by this Pungnammun gate along the way to Nambu market. Monumental structure which gave this city a different feel to it, a pivotal one. Historical site which was re-built in 1768. Impressive that it's still standing tall after such a long period time passage.

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!

It's beautiful at night light. I just looked at it walking by at night. It would be better to enter and climb it.

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 at it in the morning. Well, better to see it at night.

PungnamMun is within walking distance from Jeonju Hanuk Village. Night scene is beautiful! You can do some shopping around PungnamMun. A lot of local shops & restaurant. If you game for authentic local food, which Jeonju is famous for Bean Sprout Soup. Their local market is very near as well, Located on the right of front view of PungnamMun.

This gate is just like the gates you will see in Seoul but this one has a little more character to it. The roundabout is a short walk but goes along some very typical countryside shops. Take the extra 5-10 minutes to walk the sidewalk around the gate. It's fun!
