Gossidonggul Cave


     Gossidonggul was named after the last name of `Ko Jong-Won', one of the generals of the     civil army troops during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, whose family and relatives     found refuge in the cave. This limestone grotto bears a wondrous beauty formed through     about the four hundred million years having wells, water falls, chambers and squares with 24     species of microorganisms in them. Visitors can still find the smoked trace of furnace which     the Kossi Family used in their refugee life during the Japanese Invasion. All of the refugees in     the cave, unfortunately, were found and burnt to death by the fire the invaders set into the     cave.
