What people say

"Il est mentionné dans les chroniques des trois royaumes (Samguk sagi) que durant la 14ème année du règne du roi Munmu (661~681), un grand étang fut creusé et de petites montagnes furent construites dans l’enceinte du palais. De belles fleurs furent plantées et on fit venir des animaux rares afin de créer un jardin extraordinnaire. C’est en fait à Wolseung, une forteresse érigée en 101 que l’on peut trouver ce fameux étang de Anapji. En 1974, une fouille archéologique révèle une forme sphérique de 200 m sur 180 m indiquant l’étang ainsi que trois îlots de tailles différentes. Grâce à des efforts de restauration, l’étang de Anapji peut-être vu dans une forme proche de sa splendeur d’origine.. Les vestiges de Imhaejeon Imhaejeon était l’un des palais secondaires de la famille royale de Silla, il était utilisé par le prince héritier. Le nom de Imhaejeon est en fait le nom du bâtiment le plus important du site et les chroniques historiques s’y réfèraient souvent pour parler de l’ensemble du site. Une fouille archéologique a permis de découvir plusieurs bâtiments, des corridors, l’étang d’anapji, et cinq tours dans la partie la plus à l’ouest du site. Certains bâtiments ont été restaurés d’autres ont été laissés tel quel, ne laissant apparaître que les pierres angulaires."
