|The offices and inns in Namgyeong of Goryeo started when this region was incorporated into one
of the local provinces that were directly ruled by the central government. In Yangju-mok, which was
one of the 12 Moks established nationwide in the 2nd reign year of King Seongjong (983), a governor
was dispatched from the central government. After that, Namgyeong, one of the three Gyeongs, was
constructed in the 21st year of King Munjong (1067), then the Namgyeong Palace was completed on the
current site of Cheongwadae during the 9th year of Sukjong (1104), which was inherited to the
Joseon Dynasty as a main Palace site. In this way, in the Namgyeong region, one of the municipal
administrative regions from King Seongjong to the late of the Goryeo Dyansty, various government
offices and inns were established.
According to a record written in Joseon Taejo Sillok (Annals of King Taejong), Vol. 11
entitled 'Hanseongbu was the former site for Seonghwangdang,' the Hanseongbu government office of
the Joseon Dynasty was constructed on the site where Seonghwang of Hanyangbu, Goryeo had existed.
Seonghwangdang was a shrine for the rituals to the tutelary deity, which stood within the offices
or close to Sanseong (fortress). In this respect, we can conclude that the Yukjo geori (Street of
Six Ministries) including Hanseongbu of the Joseon Dynasty was located on the same ground for the
Namgyeong offices of the Goryeo Dynasty.
