at the celebration ceremony, a large screen kept playing historical pictures of Guanghua gate in various stages. Some old people who had experienced the Japanese rule stopped to watch these pictures. Many people were filled with tears and sighed.

“as the main gate of Jingfu palace, the reconstruction of Guanghua gate means the restoration of a historical landmark in South Korea. This will boost the self-esteem of our nation. Now, Guanghua gate is arranged at the original site and uses the original structure, which will also become a kind of historical memory.” Yin kunmu, head of the Korean Cultural Heritage Management Committee, said.

the newly built Guanghua gate is magnificent and magnificent. Whether it is the painted gate plaque, the front step of the platform up to 8 meters wide, or the animal carving and foolishness of the eaves, it has been restored vividly. There are three rainbow doors. The middle rainbow door is for the emperor to pass through. Its ceiling is painted with a pair of Phoenix symbolizing the emperor and princess. The rainbow door on the left is painted with the northern patron saint Xuanwu, while the rainbow door on the right is painted with a pair of unicorns.

it is reported that the reconstruction of the whole Guanghua gate cost a total of 30 billion won and took four years.

according to South Korean media reports, the South Korean people participating in the scene were filled with emotion. “I’m very proud,” said park genshui, a 74 year old man who rushed from Qingzhou to Seoul to attend the ceremony early in the morning. “When we were children, we lived under the high pressure of them (Japan). Whenever Japanese soldiers walked by, no one dared to go out. At that time, even children dared not cry when referring to ‘Japanese’.”

for many tearful Korean people, it has been a great blessing in their life to see Guanghuamen again.

many people support the old and carry the young. The family slowly lined up to enter the Jingfu palace from Guanghua gate, just like walking into the corridor with a long history.

are the main gate of Jingfu palace, a palace built in 1395 during the reign of the emperor Taizu of the Lee Dynasty of Korea. Guanghua gate was originally named as the four main gate, and was renamed “Guanghua gate” in the seventh year of emperor Shizong (1425), taking the meaning of “illuminating the four directions and enlightening the four directions”.

at the end of the 16th century, Japanese Military General Hideki Toyotomi invaded the Korean Peninsula and Guanghuamen was burned. After that, it was not until 1864 that Guanghua gate was rebuilt.

but not many years later, Japan occupied the Korean peninsula again. In 1910, Japan’s ITO government forced the Korean government to sign the “Japan ROK merger treaty” and officially annexed Korea. During the period of Japanese colonial rule, in 1926, in order to build the governor’s office of the colonial authority, Guanghua gate was moved to the east gate of Jingfu palace. Even if it was relocated, it failed to save the fate of Guanghuamen. During the Korean War from 1950 to 1953, Guanghua gate was burned down again.
