One of the Suwon's landmark.

This gate was one of the Suwon's landmark, and located in the center of big road. So we could not approach and view in detail. If on Haenggung trip, it was worth to pass by slowly. There was not access, but there was one of Suwon's landmark with Choseon's architecture.

Southern Gate
Jul 2019
Paldalmun Gate is the southern gate to Suwon's Hwaseong Fortress. It is not connected to the rest of the fort but is located on an Island in the road. An impressive gateway, surrounded by modern buildings.

Just a gate surrounded by modern buildings
Jul 2019 • Business
Paldalmun isn't connected to the fortress, but is rather an isolated gate surrounded by modern buildings. It might make for a nice photo, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit it. Rather, go to the fortress through some of the other gates.

Nice contrast between old and modern
May 2019 • Solo
My favourite of the gates of Suwon, because of the contrast between the old gate and the busy road and the market in the streets next to it.

Southern gate of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress
May 2019 • Family
Locating in downtown, this has been isolated by roads after the long period of time.
It's good to take a look and learn architecture. But, access is not allowed.
- It feels very similar to Namdaemun(Sungnyemun) Gate of Seoul.
- Paldalmun isn't the main gate. Janganmun in north is. Because the king visited from the north.
- From this, you can go to Hanggung-dong Street or Nammun Market(market complex).

This is one of the most amazing places to see in Suwon. It is on unesco world heritage list and also you can enjoy shopping in the bazaar around there.

Good for hiking too

You can get a nice view of wall during night time, and have a walk from the gate and just follow the wall...you'll see more natural attractions. Very pretty when it snows...recommended for night hiking.

The main gate of the city walls - a great starting point
Dec 2018 • Couples
We came here right from the Suwon train station using a taxi we found just outside.

It was only around 15 minutes away and just outside the gate are good coffee shops you can warm up in.

Around the gates are good walking grounds that you can wander about with nice seating just outside the city walls.

Above the gate, is where you can start your journey to see all the city walls.

Good starting point for a walk around Suwon city wall
Oct 2018 • Couples
We walked the length of Suwon city wall, starting and ending at Paldalmun. It's a great starting point because it's such an obvious landmark, and there's a taxi stand right next to the gate so it's easy to get back to the train station afterwards.

The gate is huge & impressive, really beautiful. It's in the middle of a busy roundabout so it's hard to get a good photo. There's no pedestrian crossing to get to the wall in the centre of the roundabout, so there's no easy way to get up close to it.

Cannot walk through it
Aug 2018 • Couples
The newly restored Paldalmun Gate, the southern gate of the Hwaseong Fortress is one of the symbols of the city and takes up the center of a roundabout in the middle of a busy area of the city. Unfortunately, you cannot walk through the gate as the center area is not pedestrian accessible. Near the gate is a traditional market and the Paldalsa Temple which are worth a quick look around.
