HERITAGE in PHoTo/DOMESTIC

담양潭陽 소쇄원瀟灑園 제월당霽月堂


Located at Damyang-gun County, Jeollanamdo Province, South Korea, Sosweawon or Sosaewon is a a typical Korean garden from the Joseon Dynasty era. 

Clean waters in the valley are flowing below the walls and falls through the small cataract into the lake. 

Originally constructed built in the 1520s and 11930s by Yang San-bo, who gave up his government position, the garden was partially burnt down during the Japanese invasions of Korea (1592–1598). 

This house complex has been rebuilt by his descendants since then, and the present Sosweawon consists of several pavilions  such as Jewoldang, Gwangpungdang and Daebongdang. 

Literally "bright moon after raining", Jewoldangdang is the main building, especially for the host.
