Sejongno is a street that cuts through Jongno-gu in downtown Seoul. It is named after King Sejong who was the fourth king of the Joseon Dynasty. The street is only 600 meters in length, but thanks to its central location it is of great symbolic importance. It points north to Inwangsan and Samgaksan (Mountains), and the Joseon Dynasty palace, Gyeongbokgung. To either side of the street rests the Public Prosecutors Office, Sejong Center, Kyobo Life Insurance and other numerous landmarks of Seoul.
At the northern end of Sejongno sits Gwanghwamun, the gate at the entrance to Gyeongbokgung. The name Gwanghwamun is also commonly used to refer to the intersection at the southern end of Sejongno.

Gwanghwamun is the main and largest gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace, located in Seoul. As a landmark and symbol of Seoul's long history as the capital city during the Joseon Dynasty, the gate has gone through multiple periods of destruction and disrepair. Recent restoration work on the gate was finished and revealed to the public on August 15, 2010.
