[Tour] Exploring historical attractions in Daegu, Inheungseowon

Exploring historical attractions in Daegu, 

Have you ever heard about Myeongsimbogam? It’s 明心寶鑑 in Chinese character. This book was traditionally used for a way of home education in some Asian countries and some of modern families are still using this book for home education. Today’s attraction is Inheungseowon, where the part of Myeongsimbogam is placed. Seowon has both meaning of a lecture hall and a memorial hall. Inheungseowon used to be a lecture hall and now it’s used as a shrine.

A tombstone stands on the right side of the entrance. This tombstone is allowed for senior grade of the second court. You will see Gwansuran on the left side of Inheungseowon passed by the entrance. 

This place was one of the student housings.

This place is called Yosanryo. Yosanryo was also a student housing. Students under 20 years old could live here.

In the backyard of Inheungseowon, there are Munhyeonsa and Jangpangak. Munhyeonsa is a place for enshrining Myeongsimbogam creator’s ancestral tablet. Woodblock-printed books of Myeongsimbogam are placed here. 

There are more than 20 shrines around Daegu worthy of the name of traditional city! I will keep uploading information of other shrines around Daegu!
