Anseong Shrine

Gaeksa is a shrine in which the king’s tablet was kept by a county governor and where commemorative rites were performed on every first and fifteenth day of the month. Anseong Shrine is thought to have been built before the early Joseon Period, and was repaired in 1695 (the 21st year of the reign of King Sukjong of the Joseon Dynasty) according to the record found on a roof tile. The shrine was originally situated near the government office in the town, but was moved to Myeongnyun Girls’ Middle School during the Japanese Occupation, and then repaired and moved to its current in 1995. As the building was built using the column-head bracketing system of the Goryeo Dynasty, it is considered an important material for studies on Korean architectural history.
