Gongsimdon, a kind of a watchtower, was built for the first time at Hwaseong Fortress.  Three were build at Hwaseong Fortress: Seobukgongsimdon, Namgongsimdon and Dongbukgongsimdon.  Built in July 19, 1796 (the 20th year of King Jeongjo’s reign), Dongbukgongsimdon has a round shape, one of the most noticeable details of the fortress. It was called a turban shell tower due to a spiral brick staircase inside the tower.
