Notes
Content: [Don Wha Moon] This gate is the main gate of the Chang Duk Palace. Built in the fourth year of Taijong's rule (1404), the gate is 550 years old. It is one of the oldest remaining wooden structures in Seoul, others being the South Gate, and Hong Wha Moon of the Chang Kyung Palace. [1] [Kum Chun Kyo Bridge] Built in 1404 by Taijong. On October 17, 1834 (the 21st year of Kojong), reformists, led by Kim Ok Kyun, Park Young-hyo and Sur Jai-pil (Dr. Jaisohn), attacked and murdered six conservative cabinet ministers and generals on this bridge. Foreign Minister Min Young-mok, Home Minister Min Tai-ho, Finance Minister Cho Yung-ha, and Generals Han Kyu-chik, Yun Tai-jun and Lee Jo-yun were assassinated. The reformists hid themselves under the bridge before the attack. [2]
