Gwana means a traditional government office building where the officers work on official affairs.
The Gwana site of Jejumok is the center of politics, administration and culture at Jejudo Island.
As the result of the excavated research at this Gwana site the scale and location of the Dongheon (administration office) and the (residence of the head officer) building site, the most important facilities from the age of the Tamra Dynasty to the Joseon Dynasty, were found.
Through this research it was proven that the Gwana site of Jejumok is a very important ruin as the center of Jejudo island from ancient to modern times.
Southwest of these ruins is the famous Gwandeokjeong Pavilion (National Treasure No.322) which was built in the 30th ruling year of The Great King Sejong (1448) to be used as a training camp for soldiers.
This Gwana site including the Gwandeokjeong Pavilion was appointed and preserved as a historical heritage by the Government due to its important function as the center of Jejudo Island from the ancient to modern times.
