Omokdae

You are now at the sky lounge of the Hanok Village called Omokdae. Omokdae definitely offers the best view of Jeonju Hanok Village where you can see all the black roof tiles of the traditional houses. Also, the Hanok Village looks very neat and pretty, with lots of open space.

King Taejo of the Joseon Dynasty once stayed at Omokdae with his troops when he was a General of the Goryeo Dynasty. In 1380 when the Japanese invaded Korea through the Geumgang River, Japanese soldiers retreated to the Namwon region to find their way, and General Seonggye Yi (later King Taejo) defeated them at the Battle of Wunbong. On the way back after winning his great victory, General Yi held a party at Omokdae, celebrating their triumphant return.

On the left side of Omokdae, there is a monument inscribed with the phrase ‘Taejo-Gohwangje-Jupilyuji’, meaning ‘Where King Taejo and his horse momentarily sojourned”. The phrase on the monument was written by King Gojong of the Joseon Dynasty. Omokdae and the monument were both erected in the late Joseon Dynasty, and they are valuable cultural assets, enabling us to understand the roots of the history of the Joseon Dynasty. After enjoying the scenery and breezes at Omokdae, don't miss to stop by the photo spot and the second observatory on your way down the wooden stairs.
