Tour Attraction

“If the water in Changrang is clean, I shall clean the string to my hat; if the water is dirty, I shall wash my feet.” Taksajeong Pavilion

Taksajeong Pavilion, located along a highway from Wonju heading into Jecheon, stands like something out of an artwork. It was originally called Pal Song when Im Eung-ryong, who served as Jeju Susa, returned to his homeland and planted eight trees he had brought in 1568 (the 19th year of King Seonjo of Joseon). In 1925, his descendant Yun Geun built a pavilion commemorating King Seonjo. The sweet scent of dandelions flowers in the pine forest brings about a special aura to this pavilion.

Refreshing streams of water flow through the beautiful and robust rocks that nature has sculpted over ages, and petals from mountain cherry blossoms float along the breeze. It is simply refreshing to sit on the side of the rocks and listen to the sound of the stream while letting go of the burdens of daily life. Perhaps one may find unexpected joy with a fishing rod in hand. In the summer, Taksajeong Pavilion is an ideal location for family and group outings.

Under the valley exists a small sandy beach, and tall pine trees bend to create a comfortable shade. Catching small snails from the bottom of the rocks is fun too.

However, there are those who boast that they have been to Taksajeong Pavilion despite never having actually seen the real Taksajeong Pavilion. When one looks up from the river, they will see Taksajeong Pavilion located on a steep cliff, as if it were holding the sky up. The thick pine forest that surrounds the pavilion adds to its aloof beauty.

Taksajeong Pavilion can be reached by crossing the bridge in the direction of Wonju and turning right. Although it looks extremely high from the river, the pavilion can be reached in 3-5 minutes by foot. The mountain path is adequate for children as well.

The name ’Taksajeong Pavilion’ is said to be from an excerpt from Gul Won’s Eobusa, which states “If the water in Changrang is clean, I shall clean the string to my hat; if the water is dirty, I shall wash my feet.” When one is tired from the worldly things, they can come up to Taksajeong Pavilion to be cleansed. The refreshing sounds of the wind through the pine forest, the vast overreaching mountains, and the cold blue streams will cleanse one’s exhausted heart to give new wisdom and dedication. If one has time, they can stop by the Baeron Holy Ground, which is about 10 minutes away by car, to enjoy its fresh spring water, which will bring refreshment to the body and mind.
