The origin of Yeonhwamot (literally means Lotus Flower Pond), according to the record, this small village was a town of bandits between 1275 and 1309. In middle of this pond, they built houses and a small thatched roof house in a small pond and used to rob people. One day, they got information that a newly hired judge would go though this village. But, a “Dduk” grandma noticed that they plotted against the judge and let the government office know about this. So, government army went out to get rid of those bandits and during the fight, the grandma died by the bandits. Then the government officer built a monument in order to honor her loyality. After that, the site of the houses of the bandits was used as pond for horses & cows. In the middle of 17th century, there was a big renovation on this site as it is now.
Nobody really knows when these lotus flowers started planting. Best season to visit this pond is between July and August.
