Mayor’s Greetings

Gyeongsan-si, located in the south central part of Gyeongsangbuk-do, is a cultural city with a long history.

It was a base for Aptokkuk in the ancient Three-Hans period; an outpost for unifying the three divided nations in the Silla era, where General Yu-shin and the regional ruler Kim fostered Hwarang (elite troops); and the birthplace of three saints: Saint Wonhyo, Seol Chong (a grand scholar), and Il Yeon (a distinguished Buddhist monk).
