Information

Wolseongsan Mountain is 314m and it is also known as Bongujae. It is situated southeast to the city of Gongju, and the terrains are relatively high in the west-east direction. Together with Duribong Peak (Mawolsan Mountain) and Jumisan Mountain, it surrounds Gongju in the shape of a gigantic ship. Considered the “guardian mountain” of Gongju, Wolseongsan Mountain contains a beacon mound that played a key role in communication between the people of Seoul and the southern region in the Joseon Dynasty. The beacon mound constructed in the Joseon Dynasty was considered a pivotal place for communication as the signal fire from the Jeolla-do area was received and passed down to the beacon mound on Godeungsan Mountain in Jeongan-myeon.
