Seoul, Korea

Donhwa Gate, the great two-story, five-bay gate of Changdeok Palace, is said to be the largest and oldest wooden gate in Korea. It was burned down during the Imjin War and restored 1608. The gate's double roof is elaborately bracketed and decorated with Chinese-style chiwen and wenshou. A row of sam-taegeuk is painted on the upper deck, which used to function as a drum tower.
