Chongryongpo, Danjong's Exile Place



 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, all of which generate a sad atmosphere of the days when the ill-fated King lived in horror of death and loneliness. It was named
Chonnyongpo, for the river is always clean and is in harmony with the mountains, which induces a great number of tourists.
