Korean Traditional Garden ‘Soshoe-won’ and The Entrance to The Garden In Damyang, Korea.

in busy •  9 months ago

It is not easy to find the Korean traditional garden now days.
At first, introducing the characteristics of the Korean traditional garden seems helpful for you to understand and enjoy the Korean traditional garden.

The Korean traditional gardens mean the gardens of Choson dynasty.
It is impossible to find out the gardens made in other dynasties except Choson.

The traditional gardens in Korea had the strong influence from the Confucianism and the Taoism.
In the case of the Gardens, the Taoism seemed stronger than the Confucianism.
In my opinion, it would be natural when we though the real meaning of the garden, taking a rest there.

As soon as arriving at Soshoe-won, I bought a ticket and walked into the garden.
The road to Soshoe-won garden was dream like scene. Here, the meaning of Soshoe is clean and clear, ‘won’ means garden.

Soshoe-won is located in Damyang area, the west south area of the Korean peninsular, near Gwangjoo city.
Weather of this area is warm and mild to other area in Korea, so the bamboos are so popular in this area.

You can enjoy the bamboo forest on the way to the garden. Actually, the bamboo has cool characteristics among the trees. So you could feel cool atmosphere by the road.

At first you could see the small pond at the very first entrance.
The scene of the pond was so beautiful with the sunlight.

As walking into the garden, there was a wall and small pavilion with dried grass straw roof.

The patterns of the wall made by the stones and the muds seemed so humble and friendly.
What you can feel from the wall is the core of Korean culture and its characteristics, in my view.

It looks so refreshing in there at a Soshoe-won garden, it really looks clean and clear because of the bamboo forest around. If there is a pond around then it will complete the whole ecosystem of Bamboos. I wish that I could visit such place too.

I'm thinking that standing water is not drinkable.

담양에서 제일 좋았던 곳으로 기억에 남아있네요. 산세를 거스르지 않고 적절히 놓인 정자며 집들이 자연스러우면서도 편안한 느낌을 주는 곳이어서 선조들의 건축미학을 엿볼수 있는 곳이었습니다

Are you allowed to cut from that bamboo to use in your homes as a decoration or some other activity? It looks beautiful the forest where you took the pictures :)

@slowwalker

Hi @slowwalker, I didn't know your blog. I'm amazed by your picture and the way you describe Korea to the world. What di you use to shot them?

Greetings from Italy! 🇮🇹

You have such amazing moment around this Soshoe-won ..I like those bamboo environment seem so refreshing there, we had similar house in local here mud with stone i guess they represent the pride of culture.. thx for sharing, when I first seen "Won on Currency Note" I never thought Its having such interpretation ‘won’ - garden. There are lot to learn in Korea cultura the way I see it...

Your trip to Korean must have been amazing!
