  • Information
    Introduction
    The Imcheonggak Pavilion was built as a home during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1919) because of one aristocratic family’s love for the scenic beauty of the surrounding area. The most famous structure on this property is the annexed pavilion. Imcheonggak is designated Treasure No.182. Thankfully this structure was untouched during the Japanese invasion taking place from 1592-1598.
    An autograph of the famous Confucius scholar, Lee Hwang (1501-1570), can be found hanging outside the pavilion.
