Built in 1729 by descendants of General Choi, Ho, the shrine was renovated in 1906.
General Choi, Ho was born in 1536 at Balsan, Impi-hyeon. He trained himself under his father and passed the military service examination of infantry in 1574, the 7th year of King Seonjo’s reign. He passed another military service examination thereafter, and, as a soldier, he gave outstanding contributions and was beloved by King Seonjo. During the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592 when King Seonjo fled to Euiju, General Choi, Ho, bravely fought against the Japanese in Hamgyeongnam-do Province. In 1596, he conquered the rebellion of Lee, Mong-hak in Chungcheong-do Province. He died in the Chiljeonnyang Battle of the Jeongyu War against the Japanese. Prizes bestowed from King Seonjo and his relics are stored in the Gunsan Modern History Museum.
