Introduction
Located at the western base of Mt. Wolchulsan in Yeongam-gun Jeollanam-do province, Gurim Maeul is a 2,200 year-old village that was created during the Era of the Confederated Kingdoms of Samhan (Three Han States).

Gurim Maeul, which is the setting of many tales and has produced a number of great historical figures, is a beautiful village with an abundance of natural, historical, and cultural points of interest.

In particular, 96 traditional houses including Anyongdan, Wolindang, Gukamsa and Anhyeongung offer valuable opportunities for tourists not only to stay in Korean traditional houses but also to enjoy various activities such as paper crafts, a traditional wedding experience, rice cake-making (pounding rice with a large mallet), straw crafts, fishing, and swimming. The town is also the site of local festivals like the Wangin Cherry Blossom Festival and the Chrysanthemum Festival.
