- It is a local first-class river, the second tributary of Jungnangcheon, where water streams originating from the southern foot of Mt. Inwang, Mt. Bugak, and the northern foot of Mt. It is a 10.92km-long urban river, passing through Mugyo-dong, Gwanggyo, Janggyo, and Supyo Bridge, passing through Bangsan-dong and Cheongpyeonghwa Market, joining Jeongneungcheon Stream, passing through Majang-dong, joining the main stream of Jungnangcheon Stream, and flowing into the Han River. During the Joseon Dynasty, it was an artificial river called Gaecheon, which served as a good source of water and sewage within the capital city. During the Japanese colonial period, when the <Chosun River Ordinance> was enacted, the name Cheonggyecheon was derived by shortening the upper Cheongpunggyecheon. As Hanyangcheon was also frequently damaged by floods due to soil and sand piled up on the bottom of Cheonggyecheon over the course of 300 years, a large-scale dredging construction was undertaken in the 36th year of King Yeongjo (1760). 200,000 people were mobilized to carry out the quasi-cheon construction over 57 days, the checks were maintained, and ‘庚辰地平(庚辰地平)’ was engraved on each of the bridges to set the standard for quasi-cheon. In addition, Juncheonsa was installed as a permanent government office to manage the stream. Between 1958 and 1961, it was covered between Gwanggyo and Ogansu Bridge, and between 1965 and 1978, the cover was completed to Cheonggyecheon 9-ga Majang Railway Bridge, and the Cheonggyecheon overpass was also built. Meanwhile, on October 1, 2005, as a result of the Cheonggye Stream Restoration Project, which began with the demolition of the Cheonggye Stream Overpass on July 1, 2005, the Cheonggye Stream was revealed. After restoring Cheonggyecheon, the wind speed increased, ventilation improved, pollutants dispersed, and the temperature around Cheonggyecheon decreased, creating a pleasant environment. In addition, it brought about a great change to the ecological environment where water flows and fish play in the city center (refer to 'Seoul Geographical Dictionary').
