Provincial Highway 903 runs from the great monastery Jikji-sa southwards alongside the
Baekdu-daegan Range-line, below the east face of the southern main-ridge of Hwangak-san
[Yellow-Crags Mountain, 1111-m] in Daehang-myeon District on the west side of Gimcheon City.
 
This small, quiet, simple hermitage is found in a farming-village on the east side of the road just
before the turnoff west up to
Samseong-am.   Dosol-am is about 3km from the crest-line; it was
formerly named Woljeong-sa and is still indicated thusly on some maps, and is now independent of Jikji-sa.

south of Samseong-am and Cheonbul-am, down the road
from this Dosol-am.   Note the map of Korea showing the
