Mungyong Saejae

This valley that rides over Joryeong Mountain of Baekdudaegan was important place in social, cultural, economical and military aspects as the highest and roughest valley on Youngnamdaero connecting Han River and Nakdong River.
Saejae means "wpass even hard for birds to fly over", "pass filled with reeds", "between " Haneuljae and Aurijae, or "New pass", and recorded as Chojeom in old documents.
After Imjinwaeran, 3 gateways (historic spot No.147) (Juheulgwan, Jogokgwan, and Joryeonggwan) were established here and became fortress for national defense. There was only Gyogwi market place remained, but it was reconstructed in 1999. There is marker written as gSan-bul-dyo-shimh in Korean (local cultural asset data No.226). This area was appointed as local monument No.18 in 1974 and protected as Provincial Park in 1981. So lots of tourist visits here.
