It is said that Pak Hyeokgeose, the founder king of Silla (57B.C.-A.D.935), was born here. One day in 69 B.C., according to legend. seobeol, chieftain of Goheo village, saw a white horse kneeling by the well. When he went to the well for a closer look, the horse disappeared but he found a large egg near where the horse had been. A baby boy came out of the egg, and when he reached the age of 13, chieftains of six villages of the area chose him to be their first king, Hyukgeose. They called their country Seorabeol, the ancient name of Silla. The well remains to this day.
