  • Jukheon Traditional House[Korea Quality] / 죽헌고택 [한국관광 품질인증]

Explanation

Located near Bongjeongsa Temple in Andong, Gyeongbuk, the Historic House of Jukheon (Gyeongsangbuk-do Folk Cultural Heritage No. 146) was built in 1886 by renowned independence fighter Kim Ga-jin (1846-1922) and sold to Yi Hyeon-chan (courtesy name: Jukheon) in 1890. The house is now used as the shrine (Jaesa) of his family. It would be a great cultural experience for anybody to welcome the rising sun at a historic building such as this. Meeting the sunrise from this historical heritage is sure to be the highlight of one’s trip. The house follows the square layout characteristic to the late Joseon period houses. The house itself is surrounded by old pine trees that add to the charm of the house.

Jukheon Traditional House has four Korean traditional rooms, namely the 2-person Jukheon Gallery, Study, Elisabeth Room and the 4-person Jukheon Dongnong Room. The house demonstrates the traditional beauty of Korean houses like the wooden platform hall built upon the stone foundations, screens, and roofs with exposed beam. The screens open to the view of the stone fence and the mountains far away. Elizabeth Room was constructed to commemorate the visit of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of United Kingdom to UNESCO World Heritage site Bongjeongsa Temple in 1999. ‘Queen Elizabeth Road’ stretches from the Jukheon Traditional House to the Bongjeongsa Temple, allowing the guests to trace Her Majesty’s visit with their own steps. A mill with a thatched roof, located to the side of the complex, allows the guests to experience the traditional stepping mill. The pillar of the mill building is adorned with flags from all over the world, testifying to the many international visitors who have stayed at the house. Guests can also enjoy a free breakfast of toast, coffee, and other simple fare on the open hall of the building.
