Mudeungsan is the mountain which has been the symbol of Gwangju and recently it became the national park.

Gwangju Hyanggyo (Confucian School) is located in the Gwangju Park in Sa-dong. There are many traditional houses here estimated as built in 1392. This is a precious national asset as this school continues to hold memorial ceremonies for Confucius twice a year.
