  • Information
    Introduction
    Gyeongpodae Pavilion is famous for the view of the moon on the 15th day of the first lunar month. It is a large, tall pavilion, and its architectural feature- a “paljak” roof, is the most common form used in Korean buildings. It has been designated as Regional Cultural Asset No. 6. Its structure is divided into 6 sections in the front, and 5 sections at the side, with 28 pillars surrounding the pavilion. Located inside is Gyeongpodaebu, which was written by Yul-Gok (1536-1584) when he was only 10 years old. It describes the slow and leisurely movement of the heavens, making it even more distant, and the clear, bright moon shimmering in the darkness. There is also a poem written by Suk-Jong (1095-1105), the 15th king of the Goryeo Dynasty, and many other literary records and poetry of famous artists like Ha-Mang Jo’s (1682-1747) Sangryangmun.
    In the Geyongpodae area there are 12 other pavilions, including Geumnanjeong, Gyeonghojeong, Banghaejeong and Haeunjeong. You can enjoy Gyeongpodae, and its place in the surrounding nature, just as you would enjoy seeing artwork at a museum. It is best to visit between March and October.
