Hwaseong Fortress - UNESCO World Heritage

Hwaseong Fortress is an impressive structure from the latter part of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and the official fortress of Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do. The fortress, constructed from 1794 to 1796, was built as a display of King Jeongjo’s filial piety towards his father and to build a new pioneer city with its own economic power.
The fortress wall stretches for a total of 5.52km and has a great variety of military facilities that are hard to find anywhere else. Four gates face each of the cardinal directionsJanganmun (north), Paldalmun (south), Changnyongmun (east), and Hwaseomun (west)and the seven-arch style Sumun gates straddle the point where the nearby stream reaches the palace. Above the Sumun gates is a pavilion called Hwahongmun. 
Hwaseong Fortress was constructed under the guidance of Yu Hyeong-Won (1622-1673) and Jeong Yak-Yong (1762-1836), and is believed to have been constructed very scientifically. The fortress wall was built using Seokjae and Jeondol (bricks) and the holes between the bricks are just big enough to fire guns, arrows, or long spears through in case of an attack. 

During construction of the fortress Jeong Yak-Yong invented ‘Geojunggi,’ which uses a ‘hwalcha’ (lever) to lift up heavy stones, greatly reducing construction time.
The Suwon Hwaseong Fortress went through many turbulent times and damage, and in the battle of June 25th, many of the facilities became so damaged that they were deemed irreparable. Even though the fortress restoration initiative (1975-1979) restored many of the sites to their former glory, Paldalmun to Dongnamgakru (an area 491 meters in length) has still not been renovated. 
The fortress was designated as Historic Site No. 3 in January 1963, and in December 1997, it was designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. A variety of performances and events are held at the fortress every day and Suwon Hwaseong Cultural Festival takes place here in autumn.

 

Hwaseong Fortress Tourist Trolley

With a design inspired by the royal vehicle used by King Gojong and palanquins of the Joseon Dynasty, Hwaseong Fortress Tourist Trolley gives passengers a comfortable tour around the main attractions of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, including Yeonmudae Pst, Hwahongmun Gate, Hwaseomun Gate, Paldalsan Mountain, Hwaseong Haenggung Palace, Paldalmun Gate, Suwon Hwaseong Museum, and more. Formerly known as Hwaseong Train, the vehicle went through a transformation and changed its name to Hwaseong Fortress Tourist Trolley. It also changed its route to a tour course that circulates through all the major attractions in Suwon Hwaseong Fortress.

As the trolley circulates around the fortress, passengers can conveniently get off at their desired lacation and hop back on the next trolley tocontinue their tour. The trolley is divided into four units - one main driving unit and three passenger cars - with a maximum capacity of 44 passengers and moves at an average speed of 15km per hour. All seats have heaters installed and an earphone jack that provides an audio guide of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress in English, Chinese and Japanese.

 

Hwaseong Haenggung 24 Martial Arts Trial Performan

24 Martials Arts (Muye 24-gi in Korean) refers to the 24 martial art techniques in the Muyedobotngji (Comprehensive Illustrated Manual of Martial Arts). The manual was compiled in 1790 by Confucian scholars Lee Deok-mu and Park Jae-ga, along with the martial art expert Baek Dong-su, under the orders of King Jeongjo (22nd ruler of the Joseon Dynasty). Regarded as a resource for understanding the nature of Korean military science, the manual is an exemplary martial arts compilation that was organized into 24 techniques by adopting the traditional martial arts of Joseon, as well as China and Japan.

The 24 Martial Arts were practiced by the soldiers of the outer military unit of Jangyongyeong, the most elite military troop during the Joseon Dynasty. Soldiers stationed at the northern and southern military camps of Hwaseong Haenggung Palace practiced these techniques to effectively guard the palace. It is a considered as a significant intangible heritage because of its great historical, artistic, and athletic values. With the restoration of Hwaseong Haenggung Palace, a regular event is being held to demonstrate the 24 Martial Arts.
