Gossi Lime Cave


Kossi cave1

 Gossi Lime Cave 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 Gossi 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.
