Angbuilgu is the name for a sundial, which looks like an iron cauldron facing to the sky. It is a device that tells the time of a day by showing the position of the sun. A water clock is another device that tells the time based on natural principles. It measures time by the flow of water, and thanks to the easily-manageable nature of water, it shows the relatively exact time than other devices. The Jagyeongnu Clepsydra of the Joseon Period was a special water clock that had an automatic signaling device.
