  • Information
    Hyowon’s Bell is located at the summit of Paldalsan Mountain. The bell was created to honor the filial devotion of King Jeongjo towards his father, Crown Prince Sado. The bell has various symbols representing the city of Suwon and its cultural assets. The bell is always rung three times- the first ring is in gratitude for the love of one’s parents, the second to hope for happiness in one’s family, and the third as a prayer for self-improvement.
