At the end of the path is Sky Garden, which, being at the summit, offers a sweeping view of Daegu. Odoam Hermitage, Wonhyogul Cave, and Jwaseondae are locations famous for being where General Kim Yu-sin prayed for unification of the three kingdoms (Silla, Baekje, Goguryeo) and where the monk Wonhyo reached nirvana.
