Historical Meaning, Gwanghwamun Square

Historical Meaning, Gwanghwamun Square

The road in front of Gwanghwamun Gate was the way leading into Gyeongbokgung Palace and the largest road in the country. Even when Gwanghwamun Gate was burned down during the Japanese Invasion of Korea of 1592, the road in front of Gwanghwamun Gate, Yukjo Geori (Street of Six Ministries) still functioned as the civic center with various offices of the government outside the palace. King Gojong restored Gwanghwamun Gate when rebuilding Gyeongbokgung Palace, and rebuilt the road in front of it as the central hub of the nation.

However, the scenery of the road in front of Gwanghwamun Gate changed drastically after Japan’s annexation of Korea in 1910. Gwanghwamun Gate was relocated to the east of Gyeongbokgung Palace when Imperial Japan constructed the Japanese Government-General of Korea building inside the palace.
