Located in Kwangchonni, Nam-myon,
3 kilometers south-westward off from Yongwol-eup, Chongnyongpo
is the place where King Danjong, who was enthroned at the age of
12 and deprived of his crown at 16 by his
uncle Suyang, has spent 2 months of his banished life.
The islet-like place is surrounded by the
winding river and walled by stiff cliffs, making itself
a natural prison.
There remains the Tablet House, Keumpyobi,
Manghyangtab, Nosandae and Kwaneumsong,
of which generate a sad atmosphere of the days when the ill-fated King
lived in horror of
death and loneliness.
It was named Chongyongpo, for the river
is always clean and is in harmony with the ountains, which
induces a great number of tourists.
