'Namgaram Munwhageori' was designated as the first model of 'Culture & Art Street' in Korea. Located in the middle of the metro area, it shows traditions and unique cultural characteristics of Jinju as a city of history, culture and art.

From 1992 to 2002, it was developed over 10 years of hard work. Construction was conducted under two work stages. The first stage was for the construction of 'Culture & Art Street' and the second stage was for the construction of 'History Street'. In the whole area of Chiram, Manggyeong District, and Namgang riverside(74,546m2, 2.9km) that connects Jinyanggyo-Culture & Art Center-Jinjugyo-Cheonsugyo, bamboo grove was restored. Outdoor stages, monuments, sculptures and resting places were furnished. Various cultural spaces including Jinjuseong Castle, Namgang Watch Tower, Cheonnyeon Square, and Jungang Square were also constructed. Thus, this culture street has changed the entire aspect of this culture & art city, Jinju.

With the natural environment and unique flavor of the Namgang River that flows through the city and great scenery of Jinjuseong Castle and Dwibyeori(a cliff) for its background, it has received much recognition as a major tourist attraction of Jinju by hosting a variety of cultural and art events positively and providing people with chances to enjoy them, by playing an important role for the history education, and by providing Jinju citizens with resting places cozy and comfortable. Namgaram Munwhageori is taking its place as culture and resting space in the heart of the city.
