Status since photo:

Independence Park in the Seodaemun district of Seoul was constructed to honor the independence of Korea. The park's Independence Gate (in the first photo) was built in 1897 during the First Sino-Japanese War to celebrate Korea's autonomy as it moved away from being a Chinese protectorate. The park's Independence Hall (in the second photo) was originally built to entertain Chinese emissaries and was renamed in 1894, and the original structure was later destroyed by the Japanese. It was rebuilt in 1996. Independence Park is also home to Seodaemun Prison.
