Gyeongju Ancestral Home Tour 'Wolamjae(월암재) '




Wolamjae is a Joseon-era dwelling once occupied by General Kim Ho, known for his contributions as the Busan cheomsa (commander) during the Japanese Invasion of the Imjin Year (1592). It is one of the oldest nongovernmental structures in Korea. Wolamjae has significant value not only for its unique structural form, but also as a research resource, as it exemplifies construction techniques of the past.

Located at the base of Namsan, a mountain that is considered central to both the beginning and end of the Silla dynasty, Wolamjae is close to several major cultural/historic sites that are popular stops for sightseeing families, such as Najeong, the well that was the site of the legendary birth story of Silla’s founding monarch Bak Hyeokgeose; Poseokjeong, the site known for the demise of the Silla dynasty; and the tombs at Oreung and Samreung.
