Summary

유니크베뉴 내용 정보 테이블
Gyochon (校村) in Gyeongju was where the former Gukhak (國學), which is the equivalent of a national university today, was built in the second year of King Sinmun (31st king) or in the year 682 during the Silla Dynasty. Gukhak continued to become the Hyanghak in the Goryeo Dynasty followed by the Hyanggyo (鄕校) in the Joseon Dynasty, and the village where the school was located was called Gyochon (or Gyodong or Gyori). The old name is still used today. Since 1568 until today, Gyochon is famous for the affluent Choi family and their descendants, affectionately called "the Rich Chois," for having practiced noblesse oblige. This old village of the Joseon Dynasty hanoks, highlighting the Choi family's antique house and the Hyanggyo, has been restored as Gyeongju Gyochon Village where visitors can experience traditional cultures and attend the Choi Family Academy. Currently, the area nearby, the Woljeonggyo Bridge site that is well-known for the legends of the Venerable Wonhyo and Princess Yoseok, is under restorative construction.

Contained in the record in “the Chronicles of the Three States” is the purpose of the construction, since it states that, in February in the 14th year of the rule of King Munmu, a pond was dug and a mound was made there, and that flowers and plants were planted and rare and extraordinary birds and animals were raised there. The botanical garden of Donggungwon is a modern building inspired by the Korean hanok and is composed of five themes: Palm Garden, Flower and Tree Garden, Water Life Garden, Tropical Fruit Garden, and Foliage Plant Garden.
