Gwanghwamun is the southern gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace. It was originally constructed in 1395. It was affected by Japanese invasions or occupations twice, in 1592 (when it was fully destroyed) and 1926 (when it was deconstructed and moved by the colonial authorities). It was again nearly completely destroyed during the Korean War, and rebuilt in the 1960s with concrete. However, in 2006, it was decided that the gate would be dismantled, moved to its original position and reconstructed with wood as per the original plans. The reconstruction was completed in August 2010.
