What people are saying:

On the whole, the architectural style of the academy is simple and concise, and it reflects Tuixi's own style of life and the high morale of academic scholars. The academy is roughly divided into Taoshan Academy and Taoshan Academy. Taoshan Academy is the place where Mr. Tuixi lives and imparts knowledge to his disciples, and Taoshan Academy is the school and academy established after Mr. Tuixi's death. Taoshan Academy was built in 1561 (the 16th year of Emperor Mingzong). It is said that it was built to study academic issues after Mr. Tui Xi returned to his hometown. The older buildings inside were all designed by Mr. Tui Xi himself. In addition, the dormitory "Nongyun Jingshe" and Xiakuzhishe for Confucian living were also built.

    An excellent window on Korean past

    This Confucian boarding school is not close to Andong, but accessible by local bus. Located on a mountain, it has a beautiful view and gives me a very good sense of Korean past education. It also has ...
