Palgongsan Mountain is referred to as the sacred place of Buddhism, holding Donghwasa Temple with 11 pieces of treasures. If you enter the Bonghwangmun Gate and go up along the road, you will be greeted with the Great Unification Bhaisajyaguru Buddha, known as the world’s largest stone statue of the Buddha, on your left side. With a height of 30m and a maximum circumference of 16.5m, this stone statue was built in 1992 and now is attracting attention as a new landmark of Donghwasa Temple. If you go up the road along the valley and cross Haetalgyo Bridge, you will be bound for Bongseoru Pavilion and Daeungjeon Hall. As you search for treasures scattered in every nook and cranny, such as the three-story stone pagoda of Biroam Hermitage and Geumdangam Hermitage, the fragrance of a thousand-year old temple piles up one by one snugly inside yourself.
