    Nakhwaam

    Nakhwaam is a rocky cliff top overlooking a sheer drop to the river below. It was from this spot, in 660 AD, that 3,000 ladies of the court of King Uija jumped to their deaths rather than fall into the hands of the invading Silla and Chinese armies. Consequently, local people named the spot Nakhwaam - "the rock of falling flowers"-in their honour, and a pavilion commemorating these ladies was erected on top of the cliff in 1929.

    The cliff itself is best viewed from a boat trip on the river.

    Gudeurae Sculpture Park

    Gudeurae Park stands on the south bank of the Baengmagang River. It is the site of the ancient port from which the Baekje kingdom traded with Japan, and some would say, laid the foundations of Japanese culture. There is a legend that a Baekje king bowed on a rock here to Buddha and that consequently the rock became warm. This may be the explanation as to why this site was chosen for a modernistic sculpture park.
