Segom Pavilion in Manpho

Korea

The pavilion stood on a cliff (100 metres above the level of the Amnok River) facing the river in Manpho, Jagang Province. In 1636 Korean soldiers, who had routed foreign aggressors, washed their blood-stained swords there.


Afterwards a pavilion was built on the spot and named Segom. It is said that enjoying a bird’s eye view of the area on the pavilion was marvellous.


The pavilion was burnt down by the Japanese imperialists in 1938.
