Jisan Seodang was established in 1800, the 24th year
under the reign of King Jeongjo (reign 1752~1800) in remembrance of
the achievements of Kim Bang-Geol, as a place for the future
generations to study in. Jichonjongtaek is the head house
of Kim Bang-Geol's Family. Established in 1712 at his own request,
Jichonjecheong was a shrine where sacrificial rites were held, which
has been used as an auditorium.
Beyond the tile-roofed
houses, low mountains surround Jirye Artists' Colony, and there is a
lake down from the village. If you pass the tall gate there is a
large square and straight ahead is the main building, the
schoolhouse on the right and a shrine on the left
Although the village is 350 years old, there are houses
with rooms that are heated with wood. Because the village has
preserved the old customs with small details, it is a great place to
experience and understand Korean traditional culture.
