The small and very plain village of Oksan-ri (옥산리) is home to the historic walled cluster of traditional houses called Dongnakdang and the famous Confucian academy of Oksan Seowon, both attractively situated next to a stream. There's also a further Confucian academy here and a notable and unusual pagoda, as well as hiking opportunities, making the place an absorbing day trip from Gyeongju. The name Oksan means 'Jade Mountain'.
