scenery seen inside the wall with tall building, Shilla hotel far right
Near the entrance I heard the sound of flowing water in the plumb and the machinery which was the cooling system for Shilla hotel.
The Jangchung Gymnasium was under reconstruction. I capatuared the scene at the end of the walking.
Seoul has been the capital long since the Joseon dynasty(1392-1910) of 600 years. The fortress was built on 1395 after the kingdom began to protect capital. By the project of restoration (2011-2012) of the wall citizen could walk along the wall enjoying beautiful scenery of Seoul. Two days ago I walked Seoul Fortress Wall located at Jangchung-dong and sketched in and out of the wall. The wall was not high to walk compared to the Bugag wall opened to public recently (April,2006). I posted drawings at Bugag Wall a year ago. It's a good season to walk along the wall around Seoul.
