This is the third gate, called the "Not Two Gate" or "Gate of Non-Duality" or Burimun.  It was originally built in 1699, but was rebuilt during the Late Chosun Period.  This is the final gate before entering the main temple compound.  It symbolizes the notion that the realm of the Buddah and this world are the same.
