Pasaseong Stone Wall

Introduction

Pasaseong Fortress, built along the ridgeline of the Pasaseong peak, is rather well-preserved. With a circumference of approximately 943m, the height of the fortress wall at the tallest point is 6.25m, and 1.4m at the lowest point. Two cornerstones for high pillars and a cornerstone for short-pillar remain at Dongmunji (East Gate Site; facing Cheonseo-ri) and at Nammunji (South Gate Site; facing Ipo-ri, Geumsa-myeon). Also at Dongmunji is the Ongsangmunji. Joined to the Namhangang River, part of the fortress bursts out of the river. From this point in the fortress, one can see all of the Namhangang River. Constructed during the period of the Three Kingdoms, the Augmented Survey of Geography of Joseon (revised version;Sinjeung dongguk yeoji seungram) records that during the Japanese invasion of Korea (1592), at the suggestion of Yu Seongryong, Uiam and his army of Buddhist monks repaired a portion of the fortress wall that measured 1,100 paces in circumference. (A round trip of 1 hour on foot.)
