  • Information
    Introduction
    Gyeongpodae Pavilion, located on a small hill north of Gyeongpo Lake, is one of the eight scenic sites of Gwangdong (northeastern coast). The pavilion was originally built in 1326 but was moved to its current location in 1508. The pavilion shape and design changed over time before settling on the current design. The pavilion has five pillars in the front and on the side, with a gabled roof line typical of Korean architecture.

    The inside of Gyeongpodae Pavilion is decorated with calligraphy and poems written by many famous scholars of the Joseon dynasty, including both King Sukjong and Yulgok Yi I. The pavilion is surrounded by a pine tree forest, and is famous for its view of the moon reflecting off the waters of the lake below, which gave the pavilion its name. The area around the pavilion was designated as a provincial park in 1981.
