The mural village at Janganmun Gate's old street, located in Jangan-dong of Paldal-gu, was started in order to develop the area, which had become run-down and dilapidated over the years. Starting from Sinpung Elementary School and extending 500 meters all the way to Hwaseomun Gate, the area's network of small and large alleyways is riddled with beautiful, artistic murals that attract many visitors throughout the year. The artworks here were created using recycled waste materials, and there is a little garden installed at almost every corner. The murals, which are rather simple and plain, express the simple livelihoods of the many residents in this part of Suwon.
