Old Kaesong Wall

 

The old Kaesong Wall was the wall of the capital in the Koryo time (918-1392).
It includes the present Kaesong with Mt. Songak at the background.
It is about 23 km in circumference. It involves the Wang wall, Outer Wall(or Rasong) and Inner Wall (or Panwolsong).
The name Kaesong has been used for thousand years.
The Outer Wall was built between 1009-1029.
In the Koryosa was written that it took 304 400 man-days of labour or 238 938 strong young men and 8 450 technicians to build it.
While Koryo was in full flourish, the population of the city was great. It was so crowded with houses from Kaesong to the River Ryesong that a man was said to be able to pass the street under the eaves without being exposed to rain.
