Manhwaru, the two-story pavilion-like structure that functioned as the main gate of the Hyanggyo
and Daeseongjeon (Confucian Shrine hall).

The Jeonju hyanggyo was originally located at Gyeonggijeon, but moved to a nearby spot in 1603.

The mortuary tablets of seven Chinese Confucian scholars and 18 Korean scholars 
are enshrined in the main building of Daeseongjeon.
Memorial tablets of Confucius, Anja, Jasa, Jeungza and Maengja.

The altars display memorial tablets that occupy individual chair-like stands behind pairs of nestable tables. The smaller table is equipped with a single drawer. During the Joseon period when the school was functioning, there would of course have been various offerings and furnishings (vessels, incense, etc.) displayed on the tables.

This exterior of Myeongnyundang lecture hall serves as Ra-on’s and Kim Byung-yeon residence in Korean Drama “Love in the Moonlight”. The yard before the hall is also the scene where Ra-on offers a chicken leg to the Crown Prince, as well as where Kim Yoon-sung spent many happy moments with the Crown Prince when they were young.
