Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, Part II: Yeonmudae (I think Running Men have been there something...)

Running man competitors rendezvoused at this pavilion and this Negi-sensei's Chinese Apperenctice comes to the same place. No wonder those running men searched this pavilion in Hanja. 
Yeonmudae or Dongjangdae (English: Martial Arts Pavilion or Eastern Command Post) is located inside Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Situated on a relatively high hill between Changnyongmun (the east gate of the fortress) and Hwahongmun (a north floodgate), Yeonmudae is an excellent military observation post with sweeping views of the inside of the fortress. 

The specific location of this command post is located at 20 Changnyong-daero 103beon-gil (Changnyong Boulevard 103rd Street), Maehyang-dong, Suwon Paldal-gu, Gyeonggi Province.

After the fortress was completed in 1796, Yeonmudae was used as a training ground for troops for over two centuries, where they learned fighting skills involving swords, spears and arrows.

At Yeonmudae, visitors can learn archery while wearing traditional military attire; the fortress also offers a wide array of performances for visitors to appreciate traditional Korean culture. Yeonmudae is included in the Suwon City Tour.
