Daejeong Confucian School

Set at the foot of Mt Dan and surrounded by fields of leeks and cabbages is Daejeong Confucian School.

The school was originally built nearby in either 1408 or 1420, depending which notice you read, and was moved to the present site in 1653 “to remove bad spirits in the previous site”. The description goes on to say “It faces water to the front and a mountain at the back, which is the ideal condition as far as home location is concerned.” That sounds like feng shui to me, but wherever those ideas come from the setting is very tranquil on a warm Saturday afternoon and with no one around
