Jeondaecheong Hall, where the jeonpae and gwolpae tablets of the kings were enshrined and ritual ceremonies were performed, and Imyeonggwan Halls, a guest reception area comprised of two buildings on the left and right side of Jeondaecheong, were built in the 19th year of King Taejo’s reign over Goryeo. The building complex was repaired and restored multiple times, and used as an Ordinary High School by the Japanese before being demolished in 1908.

02 Ojukheon House & Ojukheon Municipal Museum

The Ojukheon House, designated as Treasure No. 165 in 1963, was the birthplace of Sin Saimdang (1504~1551), who has long been regarded as the “ideal mother figure” by the people of Korea, and her son, Yulgok Yi Yi (1536~1584). Its name, Ojukheon, was given based on the pseudonym assumed by Gwon Cheo-gyun, a second cousin of Yulgok, because there were many bamboos that were black, just like crows, around the house.
