Seongdangmot  Lake 성당못

Much lesser known than Suseongmot Lake, however, Seongdangmot Lake deserves our attention as much we pay to Suseongmot Lake. The lake got its name from the name of the area it is located, “Seongdang-dong.” Surprisingly, the lake was created back in Joseon Dynasty after a national topography expert(국풍) recognized it as a spot with great energy where a future king would be born. So, the nation made lake to prevent people from building houses.
It is now a beloved place for resident in Nam-gu area. The famous Duryu Park, a venue used for varous city-wise events and festivals, is located right next to the lake. Google Seongdangmot Lake or Duryu Park, you will see lots of green surrounding the area.
