UNESCO World Heritage, Suwon Hwaseong Fortress

Suwon Hwaseong Fortress was constructed by king Jeongjo (reigning 1777~1800), the 22nd king of Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) after moving the tomb of his father Sadoseja, Crown Prince, who had been victimized in faction struggles in the court, and put inside a rice chest and had died in it, from Mt. Baebong, Yangju, to Mt. Hwa, Suwon. and the moving of the local government headquarters from near Mt. hwa to the current location under Mt. Paldal, Suwon. The mountain was considered as the best place to build tombs according to the theory of geomancy in those days.

The Suwon Hwaseong Fortress was designated as the Historical Remains No. 3, and has been managed as such. As subsidiary cultural assets, it has Paldalmon gate(Treasure No. 402), Hwaseomun gate(Treasure No. 403), Janganmun gate, and Gongsimdon, etc. The Suwon Hwaseong Fortress was chosen to be registered as an UNESCO World Heritage in December 1997.

태양도 숨을 고르는 늦은 오후.

빛 바랜 돌담 길을 곁에 두고 바람을 벗 삼는다.

세월의 무게를 묵묵히 감내한 돌담의 주름살을 만지며

붉게 물든 도시를 내려다 보는 순간.

200년의 시간을 오롯이 견뎌온 진짜 수원화성를 만났다.
