The ridges of the roof on Heungnyemun Gate in the ancient royal palace Gyeongbokgung are decorated on both sides with special tiles called "chimi." "Chimi" tiles of the Baekje period are larger and more extravagant than those of the Joseon period.They have been re-created after three years of restoration efforts. "Chimi" tiles are shaped like birds with their tails curved upwards. The wings have distinct patterns of feathers and lotus flowers, which add extravagance to the tiles. Produced in the year 577 during the reign of King Wideok of Baekje, these are the oldest "chimi" tiles" that still exist to this day. Measuring 1.2 meters in height, they are also twice as tall as "chimi" tiles from the Goryeo or Joseon periods. The "chimi" tiles were discovered at the site of Wangheungsa Temple in Buyeo, Chungcheongnam-do Province, which was founded by the king. It represents the beauty of Baekje architecture.
