Sukjeongmun Gate is one of Seoul’s four historic great city gates. It is the city's northern gate and it can be visited today along the Hanyangdoseong, Seoul City Wall. Cheong Wa Dae, the official residence of the South Korean president is located not far from the gate and city wall. For decades, public access to the gate and its section of the city wall was restricted for security reasons. In 2006, public access to this section of the Hanyangdoseong was restored and it is now a very popular hiking destination. On January 21st, 1963, Sukjeongmun was recognized as part of the Hanyangdoseong, Seoul City Wall and designated Historic Site No. 10.
