Every year March and early September, the “Chun.ChuHyangSaje“ is held at the Seongdeok Temple in the innermost part of Seowon. The trail leads you to the Gobong Cemetery, where you walk along the foot of Mt. Baekwoo
Go straight to the entrance to Wolbong Seowon, and you can find the Dongjae and Seojae on both sides. Dongjae refers to Myeongseongjae, which means “Be sincere in shedding light on the bright virtues of learning.” The study is called “JohnSeongJae,” which means “reflects oneself.” Myeongseongjae and Jonseongjae are the dormitories of Wolbong Seowon. Before entering the Bingwoldang through Dongjae and Seojae, you can meet Myeonjeongbi. The tombstone is a monument erected by recording the history of Wolbong Seowon and Gobong’s teacher, Yoo In-seung, or related figures. Passing the tomb and climbing the stairs, you can see the Bingwoldang. Bingwoldang is the main auditorium of Wolbong Seowon, and is the ninth monument of Gwangju Metropolitan City. Bingwol is said to have originated from the Ice Shim Snow Garden, which expresses the transparent and clean nature of Go-bong, and was granted a pardon by King Jeongjo. If you look next to the Bingwoldang, there is Jangpangak. Jangpangak is an annex for storing data in Wolbong Seowon. There are 474 engravings of GoBong’s collection of 11 books and Hyeonpans of Chungsindang, Myeongseongjae, John Seongjae and Yoo Young-ru. If you go inside, you will find the main entrance. Jeonganmun is the main gate of Wolbong Seowon and stands in front of Sungdeok Temple, the shrine. Before entering the shrine, which houses Gobong’s high-salaried teacher, it means to have a quiet and peaceful mind.Passing through the main gate, you will find Sungdeok Temple. Sungduksa Temple is a shrine to Wolbong Seowon, which is located in the direction of King Gobong’s expected victory. Every March and early September, the memorial service is held.
If you looked at Sungdeok Temple, you would have looked at all the Wolbong Seowon. If you feel sad, look around the Wolbong Seowon and see the Gobong Tomb, the site of the Gajeon Rock, and Baekwoojeong Pavilion, and let’s move to the Janggo Shrine in Wolgye-dong.
