Taejongdae was named after the 29th king of the Silla Kingdom (57 BC-AD 935), King Taejong Mu-yeol (Kim Chun-choo) who is said to have enjoyed shooting arrows in this beautiful place that boasts thick pine trees and magnificent cliffs.
Taejongdae can be said to be even more famous than Yeongdo as people who might not know where Yeongdo is usually know Taejongdae.
