Discover the province of Gyeonggi
Province of Gyeonggi, you will discover historical sites while walking along the mountain paths. Like most provinces, it also has towns on the Yellow Sea.
For your general knowledge, the last descendants of the people who lived on Ganghwa Island still live in this part of Korea. The dolmens (single-chamber tombs) over the region are witness to its very long history and are classed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. They lived in a ‘hermit kingdom’, and left their community to mix in with the rest of the Korean people in the middle of the 19th century.
The Bomunsa temple, which is on Seongmodo Island, not far from Ganghwa Island, hides a temple which tells the story of the discovery of 23 statues by a fisherman who caught them in his net and entrusted them to monks.
