Destination: Guryongsa / Chiaksan National Park (Wonju city, Gangwon-do)

:

Called ‘the weekend gateway for residents of the Seoul Metropolitan Area’, Chiaksan National Park covers 181 square kilometers just east of Wonju. The focus here is on Guryongsa, the temple inside the park. Literally ‘Nine Dragon Temple’, Guryongsa has a wonderful legend behind its name – and the temple’s creation. Buddhist Master Ui Sang left the Wonju area and headed for the Chiaksan mountain
