Talking about sajikdan


A founding element of the Joseon capital

Along with the royal palace (Gyeongbokgung) and the Jongmyo shrine, the Sajik shrine is a fundamental symbol of the new capital city created during its first year. It is located west of the palace, at the feet of Inwangsan, in the neighborhood of Seochon, and gave its name to the Sajik park that surrounds it, as well as to its administrative neighborhood Sajik-dong.

On this square altar were honored on key moments of the lunar calendar the national deities of earth (Sa) and grains (Jik).

Certain ceremonies have been recently revived in the square altars, to mirror the rites of Jongmyo jerye, now on the UNESCO's list of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
