The Garden of Morning Calm:
Where a Fresh Morning Meets Serene Elegance
Rabindranath Tagore, the great Indian poet, once depicted Korea in his poem as the “Garden of Morning Calm”. Named after this poetic line, the Garden of Morning Calm is where a traditional Korean garden meets modern sensibilities. This attraction is divided into different thematic gardens featuring traditional Korean aesthetics that emphasize concepts such as curved lines, empty spaces, and the beauty of unbalanced things. Walking down these serene gardens will allow you to discover a unique brand of Korean elegance and beauty. Notably, during the off-season in winter several years ago, the Garden started Korea’s first lighting festival offered in a botanical garden, by decorating its trees with millions of sparkling lights. Whether you visit in spring, summer, fall, or even winter, the Garden of Morning Calm never fails to delight!
