Honinji (혼인지) is located in Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do (eastern part of Jeju island). The word “Honinji” literally means marriage site. According to the legend, it is home to a myth that agriculture and farming started on Jeju Island when the Samsinin (three founding demi-gods) who lived in Jeju married the Samgongju (three princesses from Kingdom of Byeokrang) and started raising cattle and ponies and planted the seeds of five grains. There is a pond here called Honinji Pond (pond of marriage) where, the wedding ceremony was held and three caves which served as bridal rooms.
Together with Samseonghyeol (three large holes on the ground where the three demigods emerged from), Honinji is a great place for tracing the origin of the founders of Jeju Island. In the summer, the area is in full bloom with red lotus flowers.
You can enjoy a walk in a quiet atmosphere as it’s not a well-known place. Also, it holds a “Honinji Wedding Festival” in every October. It was designated as Jeju monument no. 17 in 1971.
