(Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese)
Palseokjeong Paviliion refers to a scenic spot located in Apdeul Riverside in Pyeongchon-ri, Bongpyeong-myeon. There are eight large rocks here, and they create an excellent view harmonized with surrounding landscape. Palseokjeong Pavilion literally means eight rocks. When Sa-eon Yang was appointed as Gangneungbusa, he took a look around Gangneung area. When he arrived at Pyeongchon-ri, he was so impressed by its beautiful scenery that he forgot to perform his official duties and admired the scenery as if he were a Taoist saint for eight days in a row. After that, he had people build a pavilion called ‘Parilgyeong’ and paid a visit to it three times a year to get ideas for poems. Visitors still read his poems written around the rocks.
