[Sept. Special] Fortress barracks site of Jeolla

Jeolla ByungYeong was the main base of the Jeolla Army for 500 years during the Choson Dynasty. It was moved from GwangSan-hyeon in 1417, the year of King TaeJong's 17.

Its First commander, General Ma-ChunDeuk, built it and people called it "Snowy ByungYeong," because of General Ma's dream. It was constructed on flat ground and was a long, vertical shape with a total length of 1,500 meters.

  2. It looks like there is no mortar in this wall - and it is standing upright all these years long. Beautiful construction, attractive feature to see.
