Korean Mountain Fortress Namhansanseong Earns UNESCO World Heritage Status

 

Korea’s ancient mountain fortress, ‘Namgansanseong’, recently made the UNESCO world heritage list.

UNECO held the 38th meeting of the World Heritage Committee in Doha, Qatar and decided to designate South Korea’s ‘Namhansanseong’ as a World Heritage

site.

‘Namhansanseong’ is Korea’s ancient mountain fortress in Gwangju City, Gyeonggi Province. Along with ‘Bukhansanseong’, it is one of two mountain

fortresses built during the Joseon Dynasty to defend the capital, Seoul.

The fortress has about 200 historic sites and buildings, including Haenggung(행궁), a temporary palace.

With Namhansanseong, a total of 11 of Korea’s cultural heritages have been listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.
