This modern temple built on an ancient sacred site is just west of the Baekdu-daegan Ridgeline-Trail in
Ibaek-myeon District of Namwon City.  It was visited by the Baekdu-daegan hikers on a rainy day of 9/2007.

This Mountain Spirit painting in the small Sanshin-gak left of the Main Hall, painted with oils
on a thin sheet of metal (

Including an entire family of four tigers, the patriarch with a lion's mane... never seen before.
The statue in front features exaggeratedly-large staff-with-gourd and ginseng-plant motifs.
