Suwon Hwaseong Fortress

Bongdon can be seen from the front of the Hwaseong Haenggung (temporary palace). It was made because the king can watch the signal right at the palace. By placing a guard at this Bongdon, emergencies were informed through lights and smokes. The first one in the south among the five lights was used in peacetime.
