Dating back to 1658 AD, Daegu's Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Street was a central market for the region, located within the city walls of Daegu's former castle grounds. Still very much in use today, the street possesses over 350 businesses related in some way to ancient herbal medicine and related health products and services, including some nostalgic herbal tea houses and restaurants offering healthy herb-influenced cuisine. Every May, the street operates a popular Herbal Medicine Festival that helps promote the past history of the area, as well as re-introduce traditional medicine and treatments to new generations.
