Feel Korean tradition in the heart of Daegu, Keimyung University Hanhak-chon

Despite the fact that May is busy as it is a Family Month, Tourism Week, and Month of Festival, are you still enjoying your day?
Let me recommend to you a place where you will experience the Korean traditional atmosphere in the middle of the city.



This is a place called ‘Hanhak-chon’ in Keimyung University.
It is one of the most notable places in the world after Daegu, Kyungbuk World Forum held last April. The main reason is that President Park Geun-hye held an official luncheon with presidents from Hungary, Ethiopia, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan and Secretary General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This place was also selected as a best place that shows Korean traditional beauty.

Keimyung University Hanhak-chon was opened, reconstructing old houses and Seodang (traditional Confucian school) to promulgate Korean culture not only to the students of Keimyung University but also to the citizens of Daegu and people around the world.


Cheongsongnyu is a place used by Yuseng (student of confucianism) forrelaxation and arts. It was also a place where Yuseng studied, rested, and composed poems.






Seounjung is a place used by Yuseng for the arts.



In addition, there are Gyeongcheondang, a main educational place of Keimyung Seodang where Hunjang (traditional teacher of Confucianism) taught Yuseng, and Guinjae and Jibuijae where Yuseng lived and studied.

You will also see Keijungheon, a Yangban Han-ok (traditional Korean house for nobles) with 99 rooms, Anche (main building), Sarangchae(guesthouse), and Hengrangche (servants’ quarters).






Furthermore, they are providing humanities, Chinese Classics, and traditional culture lessons for students.
