Naksan Park gets its name from its
camel hump-like appearance. In Korean nakta means camel
and san means mountain. So people refer to the park as
Nakta Park or Naksan Park. The mountain is solid granite
bedrock. The Joseon royal family enjoyed the natural
beauty of the granite mountain, but during the Japanese Colonial
Period a hasty manner of urban planning resulted in the demolition
of most of the mountain. In an effort to save the
remaining green belts, Naksan was designated a park on June 10,
2002. Located in the center of the Seoul, this historical
and beautiful park allows its visitors to view the magnificence of
the entire city.
