Three Storied Stone Pagoda At Yongjangsavalley Of Mt Namsan In Gyeongju
Korea

This is wide known as the place where Kim Siseup (1435 - 93) wrote Geumosinhwa, or New Tales of Geumo, which is regarded as Korea's first novel.


At present there remain several stone embankments, which says this place is a site of temple.

This tower stands at the high ridges of the mountain chain stretched to the east, which surrounds the Yongjangsa Temple.

The top ornament was lost so it's hard to imagine what the original form was and the hole to fix the iron pole just remains. The tower fallen was rebuilt in 1922 but the tool for sarira had been lost a long ago.

The well-proportioned parts are so beautiful and the balance around the surroundings is picturesque.

It is a representative work in the late Silla Era.

More About Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.Text by Steve Smith.
