Southern Bastion of Hwaseong Fortress, Suwon

Chi are turret-like protruding sections placed at regular intervals along a fortress wall from which defenders could protect the fortress and drive back an approaching enemy. There are ten such structures at Hwaseong. The term chi, which literally means "a pheasant," was applied to these structures because pheasants are adept at hiding and remaining watchful.  Namchi is located between Paldalmun (South Gate) and Namporu (Southern Sentry Post).
