 Exceptional Architecture




Maybe the brightening yellow trees are the reason you came here! Once you are here, take a close look at the architecture. The structure and layout of buildings is very conventional and typical for a Confucian academy. In fact, it boasts its excellence of architecture in terms of use of space. Another must-check feature of the place is the stone wall surrounding the academy! One thing that you will get to love about traveling Korea is to compare the difference and similarities of hanok building such as palace, Confucian academy and residential area ;) I hope you have a great time!
