Just behind the Gyotaejeon stands a small hillock, called Amisan,named after a prominent mountain in Sacheonseong, China.This man-made hillock was formed with the soil left after excavations for the pond by the Gyeonghoeru Pavilion.Beautiful plantings, granite pots with peculiar stones,
and a hexagonal red-brick chimney create picturesque views.
