  • Information
    Introduction
    Omokdae Pavilion is located on top of a steep hill and is one of the places where Yi Seong-gye (who later became King Taejo, the first king of the Joseon dynasty) stopped to celebrate his victory on his way home from a war with Japanese invaders at Unbong Peak of Hwangsan Mountain, near the end of the Goryeo Era. It is also a place where Mokjo, one of Yi’s forefathers, had once lived.

    Imokdae Pavilion is located near the foot of Seungamsan Mountain where Chimyeongjasan, the site of a holy Catholic monument. 80 meters down from Imokdae Pavilion are memorial stones and a memorial house.

    Imokdae Pavilion is the place where Mokjo (forefather of King Taejo) played war games as a child with his friends, a simple action which appears in ‘Yongbieocheonga’ (a 15th century ballad narrating national longevity and cultural achievement). Mokjo left the Jeonju area and moved to Hamgyeong-do as a result of a feud with the Jeonju Busa (public governing official). Yi Seong-gye (King Taejo) believed that Mokjo’s move to Hamgyeong-do five generations before his birth was a sign from heaven pointing to his founding of the Joseon dynasty.
