Around yongdamjeong Vicinity

 

Yongdamjeong well is located at Gajeong-ri, Hyeongok-myeon, between Gyeongju and Angang.

Choi Je-u wrote 'Yongdamyusa,' a book about the propagation and absolute equality of all people.



Choi Je-u was fully supported by the poor. He founded Donghak with the principle of 'Innaecheon' that "Each person has heaven within themself; therefore, each person is heaven.' At Nawon-ri, Hyeongok-myeon, a short distance from Yongdamjeong Well, there is a five-story stone pagoda, one of Silla's treasures.

This pagoda is very large, in comparison to other Silla pagodas. It is called 'Baektap' as it is white in color.
