Sitting 850 meters above sea level, the large Buddha Gatbawi (formal name: Gwanbong Yeorae-jwasang) is 4 meters high. Its name derives from the flat rock it wears on its head like a traditional hat (gat). Gatbawi is said to grant one wish to those who pray here and so it is visited by many believers starting from the early morning. People swarm to Gatbawi at the beginning of each month and during college entrance examination season. New Year's Day is especially busy with people wanting to watch the sunrise. Gatbawi is designated as Treasure No. 431.
