1,000 Steps, Seoul, Korea

The 1,000 Steps was a famous downtown Seoul landmark in Korea during the Korean War. They led to a Shinto Temple complex on the west flank of Namsan Mountain. Unfortunately, both the 1,000 Steps and the Shinto Temples were destroyed after the war.

 

A pre-war view of the steps can be viewed on Kernbeisser's site at
