Pothong Gate

Pothong Gate in Pyongyang

The Pothong Gate ison the bank or River Pothong at the approach to Chollima Street. It was the west gate of the Walled City of Pyongyang. When Koguryo built the wall in the mid-6th century, that wasn't the only time he had to rebuild it. In fact, the wall had to be rebuild several times. It was destroyed in the last Fatherland Liberation War. The present gate was rebuilt with construction of Chollima Street. In order to match the new street, the original site was moved 55m to southeast.
