About Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul

Home to the largest herbal medicine market in South Korea, Dongdaemun-gu sprawls to the north-east of central Seoul. It’s one of the South Korean capital’s 25 districts and takes its name from the Eight Gates of Seoul, which were built as part of the city’s fortress walls in the 14th century.
