Namsangol Hanok Village opened in 1998 on the side of Namsan Mountain. This village has five restored hanok (traditional Korean house) premises, a pavilion, a traditional garden, a performance art stage, and a time capsule plaza, making it a perfect spot to take a leisure walk. Upon entering, visitors get a taste of Korea’s traditional life while escaping from bustling city life.

The traditional garden with its pavilion and old houses creates a peaceful ambiance before the forested Namsan Mountain. The five hanok premises once belonged to aristocrats and government officials of the Joseon dynasty. Each house was originally located in a different neighborhood but was all moved to this area.

The premises were carefully restored and replicated according to their original form to depict the owners’ social class and personality. These buildings are now used as an exhibit to portray the living environment during the Joseon dynasty. It also served as a venue for educational and cultural programs for children and tourists.
