The former Jeollanam provincial building served as the capital building for Jeollanam province until the capital moved from Gwangju to Muan. It is slated for demolition and is most famous for being the place where the Gwangju Democratization Movement escalated into violence during South Korea's military rule; a large part of the violence occurred here, more than the other sites involved in the event. The building and the area around it is being re-developed as the Asian Culture Complex.
