The Namhansan-song Fortress was rebuilt several times after King Onjo of Paekche Kingdom first built it in earth to prevent the invasions from outside forces. In 1608, during King Kwanghae's rule, the fortress was rebuilt with the mobilization of monk soldiers from all across Choson. King Injo escaped to the Namhansan-song Fortress with 12,000 soldiers when the Ching Dynasty invaded Choson in 1636 and faced the enemy for 45 days but finally surrended.
