Different sections of the City Wall display construction or repair skills unique to their respective periods. The Seoul City Wall was built for more efficient operation and the defense of the newly designated capital, the first portion of the work was finished in 1396.NEW Description:
The Capital Fortifications of Hanyang comprises fortifications that were completed in the 18th century. These fortifications were built to defend Hanyang, the capital of the Joseon Dynasty. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the dynasty faced invasions from Japan and China. As a result, a new defense system was determined to be needed to protect the dynasty by strengthening its central military command. The Joseon rebuilt Hanyangdoseong, a city wall surrounding its capital, and constructed two other fortifications called Bukhansanseong and Tangchundaeseong north of the capital city. It is the largest existing capital fortification in East Asia.
If this nomination is inscribed in 2025, one can hope they shorten the name to just Capital Fortifications of Hanyang
