Designated as Daegu’s Cultural Property No. 29 on May 12, 1995, this shrine was built in the mid-Joseon period, during King Yeongjo's rule. The shrine holds 12 Jeongnyeo (monumental gates) awarded to the members of the Gwak Clan, built from the time of King Seonjo in 1598 to the time of King Yeongjo.

It is an important and unique shrine because the Gwak Clan attained their 12 Jeongnyeo all in one village, which is quite uncommon.

During the Joseon Dynasty, Jeongnyeo were awarded to honor loyal retainers, devoted sons, and exemplary husbands and wife.
