In mid-Septmeber 2014 I wanted to visit a place I hadn’t explored yet so I researched Dobong-Gu where I I came across a route in Banghak-dong. The trip mainly took me to graveyards and tombs and lots of hiking along the base of Dobong Mountain, which the area is famous for. I followed walking trails and found the small village-like outskirts and small land of the neighborhood at the base of the mountain and trails the most fascinating.
The above gallery sums up the rest of my day trip to Banghak-dong. Exploring the area I came across a variety of gravesites and tombs. The royal tombs include Prince Yeonsangun’s tomb, a prince of the Joseon dynasty from the late 1400s/early 1500s. The neatly kept, gated gravesite is of Princess Jeongui, the second daughter of King Sejong the Great from the mid-1400s Joseon Dynasty. The rest of the images are of various tombs, a shrine, and I believe a Confucian school.
The remaining images (below), are what I found the most fascinating, the houses and small farmland at the edges of Banghak-dong near the base of Dobong Mountain.
I shared a total of 43 images of the total 215 images that I photographed that day in my photo journey in September 2014 part 2.
