Location and Neighboring Tourist Attractions
This pavilion is the place where Sim Wonpyo(1853 ~ 1939), a loyal patriot in the latter era of the Joseon Dynasty, built it in 1913 and taught his disciples. It has three compartments in the front, and front separate hall and rear separate hall in side one compartment, and in the center there is an Ondol room (underfloor-heated room), and its roof is a traditional Korean tiled roof in the shape of a Chinese character “八” (meaning eight). Sim Wonpyo was born in Dongho-dong and his pen name was Manchwi. In his youth he learned from Gi Jeongjin and in the middle age he learned from Song Byeongjin and had fellowship with Gi Uman and Oh Junseon etc. Even in the situation that our country was becoming weakened, he kept his heart firm and helped the local volunteer army fighting against the Japanese army, and so he got himself into trouble. Gi Uman said that the word ‘Manchwi’ indicates the loft fidelity of a pine tree which does not lose its blue light even in the cold winter season. Here we can see the high spirit of Sim Wonpyo who takes Manchwi as his pen name.
