amazing gorge-hidden "Dragon-Rock Temple"
|This new and still-small temple is extremely remote and isolated, deep within the little-visited eastern side of
Juwang-san National Park (in western Yeongdeok-gun County, North Gyeongsang Province). I visited in early July of 2007.
|After the entranceway, the cement road soon ends at a stone stream-bed which you must drive
(a jeep!) or walk up for 30 meters through a narrow gorge, until the road appears again.
|Next to its Main Hall, high steep rock-cliffs can barely be glimpsed through the jungle-thick forest.
|and then larger doltap stone towers lead
you along an otherwise-unnoticed path
deeper into the forest, where a small
obscure waterfall has been converted
into crude & mystical Shamanic shrines.
