Shinshi (hanja: 神市 ) is a legendary ancient city in the Korean Peninsula from the Dangun myth. Shinshi literally means "God City".

Description of Shinshi in Historical Records[edit]

Hwanung, son of Hwanin, came down to a sacred tree on Baekdu Mountain with the spirits of wind, rain and clouds and a group of 3,000 followers. Hwanung ruled the people of Earth in 360 different matters. He named the place Shinshi, meaning City of God. There he married Ungnyeo and had a son, Dangun. Later, Dangun would move to Asadal(Pyongyang) and found Gojoseon.[1]
