|The Major Samgak San-shin Shrines
and Annual Sanshin-je Ceremonies
Seoul's highly-sacred Three-Horns Mountain has several significant Shamanic Mountain-spirit
Shrines on its various slopes. They all host one or more ritual-ceremonies every year, some fairly
large-scale; some public and others private. This page serves as an overall index to them...
|Ui-ryeong Pass Sanshin-je, Arbor Day 2003
This site is at the crest of the pass that runs between Samgak-san and Dobong-san, within the
Bukhan-san National Park, going NE from Seoul Gangbuk-gu District's Ui-dong in the east to
Gyeonggi-do Yangju City Jangheung-myeon District Gyohyeon-ri in the west. The Ui-ryeong Pass is
normally closed to the public, because it contains a military base; one day every spring hikers are
permitted to transverse it, and many of them hold rituals for the San-shin in front of this monument.
