Shrine of Loyalty, Virtue and Filial Duty Sasechungyeolmun

Sasechungyeolmun is two gates which commemorate Kim Yeomul (1548~1592) who died for the country during the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592 and the four generations of mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws in his family who committed suicide to maintain fidelity. There is a gate of loyalty (red gate commending patriots, dutiful sons and daughters) and a gate of chastity. The gate is a wooden structure with columns and a hipped-and-gabled roof. The sign hangs in the center and there is a wall around the structure. The inside of the structure has two rooms. The room on the right has Kim Yeomul’s gate of loyalty and the room on the left has the gate of chastity. The current structure was fixed in 1971 and restored in 1983.
