Joseonbomulgojeokjosajaryo-Historic Remains and Treasure of Joseon Dynasty published in 1942, there remain only an earthen fort and beacon house in Daejin-ri, Mangsang-Myeon 32km southeast of Gangneung.

A recent study reveals that the fortress is made of various kinds of sandstone. The wall of the fortress is 1~5m in height, 2~3m in width and 600~700m in length. Northeastern wall was collapsed but Southwestern wall is well preserved.
