Tapgol Park Photos

Seoul, South Korea
Tapgol Park, in the middle of Seoul, South Korea, was the launching ground for the March 1st Movement in 1919. At the park, Korean patriots read the Declaration of Independence, which expressed their desire for the end of the Japanese occupation and a free Korean nation. Much earlier, the location was the site of the Wongaksa Temple. The 10 level Wongak stone pagoda still stands in the park.
