Inphung Pavilion in Kanggye

As a command post in the northwest of the wall around the town of Kanggye, the pavilion was widely used for training and inspection of soldiers.

It was built in 1472 and rebuilt in 1680.

It reflects the outstanding wisdom and artistic skills of Koreans. Every building material and painting agree with the characteristics of the pavilion and it blends well with the surrounding natural landscape.
