Potong Gate is the western gate of the inner complex of the walled city of Pyongyang (Pyongyang Castle). It was originally built in the sixth century as an official Koguryo construction, and was later rebuilt in 1473. It features a granite base topped by a two-story pavilion. The gate's pavilion was destroyed by American bombings during the destruction of Pyongyang in Korean War, but was later reconstructed in 1955.
