    Description :
    Bukhansanseong fortress , located inside Mt. Bukhansan National park, was built in 1711, during the Joseon Period (1392-1910). It is 7 meters high, 8 km long, and is over 290 years old now. Bukhansanseong fortress functioned as resting place for kings in emergencies when they have to abandon their palaces in the capital city and retreat. Therefore Bukhansanseong fortress was built to be totally independent of the capital city. There are 15 gates to guard the fortress. With its 120 rooms, it was not as magnificent as the king’s palace, but enough for a mountain palace for the king. Especially making use of the ridgeline continuing on south from Baekundae, Bukhansanseong fortress was built to take advantage of the rough terrain and the cliffs of its surrounding area. The fortress has the fortification style representative of the Joseon Period, and its traditional architecture blends in beautifully with Mt. Bukhansan scenery, famous for its lovely granite shapes. The fortress enclosure allows you to follow its walls on a leisurely walk. In the fall, the leaves turning color on the mountain makes the fortress very picturesque.
