Finishing touches

The national Treasure No. 1, Sungnyemun, better known as Namdaemun, is seen in downtown Seoul, Sunday, as all steel-frame structures were removed, with the restoration work in its final stage. The gate, severely damaged in an arson attack in February 2008, is scheduled to officially open to the public in April.
