There are stones called "Choseok" which support the columns of the building with various shapes, different from each other in many ways.The stones are not cut or trimmed and instead, they were used as they were.
Well, you want to know why this building is called "Jinnamgwan"? The word "Jinnam" refers to "suppressing the South." Admiral Yi came to realize the seriousness of the situation on the sea and held meetings to prepare against the Japanese invasion. At that time, the seawater filled up to the stairs which we just climbed. So it was a fortress to advance towards the sea.
There are three entrances at Jinnamgwan called Tongjemun. Only the master of the house is allowed to use the main gate.
this is main building its used to be barracks for soldiers.watchkeepers i should be more precise,these building is facing sea so it serves it purpose.
v were able to roam around the building but not allowed to enter inside it,as present day watchkeeper its not allowed for us ofcourse in sign language.but i checked some website i found that visitors are allowed to enter with tourist guide that can b arranged in weekends.
