    Bosingak Pavilion was built under the name, Jonggak, in 1396, at what is today’s Insa-dong entrance, before being changed to Bosingak in 1895. Every New Year’s Eve celebration as the clock strikes twelve, the bell is rung thirty-three times to bring in the new year. The bell-ringing originates from the thirty-three times the bell was rung around 4 a.m. when Bosingak Pavilion announced the opening of Sadaemun, or four main gates.

    Directions: Exit 4, Jonggak Station (Line 1)
