This Puxin Pavilion is not very big, only one building. Originally built in 1396, it was destroyed many times in wars and fires. Also used as a fire alarm, guards line up at the entrance or around the base and ring the bell at noon every day. If you arrive in time, you can climb up and watch, and even help ring the bell.
Puxin Pavilion was first built in 1936, but it was destroyed many times by war and fire. Now the Buddhist temple was built in 1985. In ancient times, the big bells in temples were also used as fire alarms. Just get off at Zhongge Metro Station on Line 1, or you can walk from Guanghua Gate. It's very close.
Exit 4 of Zhongge Station, Metro Line 1, you can see Puxinge, which has a very important position in Seoul and is a national treasure-grade cultural relic building. Unfortunately, we can only look outside when we are locked. It is said that the President will ring the bell on the first day of the New Year.
Want to go to the bookstore over Zhonglu, just passed Puxinge. Surrounded by all kinds of modern high-rise buildings, there is indeed another world. On weekdays, however, they were locked and could not enter, so they had to look out at the old building. Since this clock is already a national treasure, it is now basically out of the New Year's Day when the President comes to ring the bell symbolically, usually not open. So we looked at the old clock from a distance. It must be very busy when the New Year bell rings.
