The fortress sprawls on both flatland and hilly terrain, something seldom seen in neighboring China and Japan. It is designed to serve political and commercial as well as military functions. Under the influence of Silhak, or Practical Learning, which was the new trend of thought gaining ground at the time, the fortress was built scientifically utilizing newly invented construction equipment. Fortification facilities were enhanced by properly combining stones, bricks, and wood and by incorporating drainage, rampart slit embrasures, crenellated parapets with embrasures, and bastions. The Hwaseong Seongyeok Uigwe (Archives of the Construction of Hwaseong Fortress) was published in 1801. It records every detail of the project, from blueprints to engineering methods, required materials, workforce, budget, timetable, and so on.
The fortress was registered on UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage List in December 1997.
