Gamaksan Monument, Paju, Gyeonggido Province, Korea
坡州紺岳山沒字碑 / 파주 감악산 몰자비
It has been unknown that by whom and when the monument was erected, but possibly by King Jinheung (reigned from 540~576 AD) of the Silla Kingdom.
Any inscription has not been found from the monument. It is possible the letters in it had been erased, but also possible that the monument had erected unfinished.
Judging from its shape and size, and especially location, it is regarded as another example of the monuments of King Jinheung, which are all located on mountaintops. The Gamaksan Monument are located on top of Mt. Gamaksan rising 675 meters above the sea level.

Seongyojang is a typical upper-class residence of the late Joseon dynasty. It was built in 1703 by Yi Naebeon, a 11th generation desendant of Prince Hyoryeongdaegun. The house comprises an Anchae(the women's quarters), a
Yeolhwadang(the men's quarters), a Haengrangchae(servants quarters), a Dongbyeoldang east wing women's quarters), a Seobyeoldang(west wing library), a Hwallaejeong(pavilion) and an annex building.
Seongyojang, though 300 years(10 generations) have passed since its erection, preserves its origina forms, and succeeds to the fame and tradition of Sadaebu(upper-class) house of the Joseon dynasty.
