Introduction

Gangwon Province administration building was the office of the governor of Gangwon-do Province during the Joseon era. In 1395, Gangwon-do was first established by integrating the Yeongdong and Yeongseo areas. As Wonju was selected as the seat of the provincial government and Gangwon Gamyeong was built in the area. The office has a similar structure to that of a royal palace, with the inner space divided into three spaces. The major buildings of the office including Pojeongru, which is the gate of the office, and Seonhwadang, the main office of the governor, are preserved in good condition, providing valuable materials for the study of ancient Korean public office buildings.
