Gwangjubawi Rock

The rock standing in Gongam-naru, Gayang 2-dong is Gwangjubawi Rock. Consisting of three 12m-high rocks, this rock is also known as Gwangjebawi, which means a rock in a large dock. When Baekje set up the capital in Wiryeseong and controlled the waterways of the Hangang River, this place was called Gongam-naru Dock. The name Gwangjubawi is estimated to be an incorrect rendering of Gwangjebawi. This rock had remained submerged under the waters of the Hangang River until the end of the 1970s, with the river flowing through the cave. In the 1980s, when the 88 Olympic Expressway was built, a bank was built up and the rock emerged above the waterline.
