Gwanak Gang Gam-chan Festival

This festival used to be known as Nakseongdae Inheonje which was a commemorative ritual held in Anguksa of Nakseongdae located in Nakseongdae-dong, Gwanak-gu every October by citizens to remember the patriotic spirit and achievements of Admiral Gang Gam-chan who was a famous commander during the Goryeo Dynasty. However, from 2015, the ritual has become a citizen-led traditional cultural festival as the name of the ritual was changed to Gwanak Gang Gam-chan Festival. It is now one of Seoul City’s iconic cultural festivals which can be enjoyed by Gwanak-gu and by all Seoul citizens.
