제주특별자치도 제주시 한경면 고산리 당산봉 서쪽 해안에 위치한 무인도이다. 죽도, 와도, 지실이섬 등 세 개의 섬과 작은 암초로 이루어져 있는데, 죽도가 본섬이고 나머지는 부속섬이라 할 수 있다. 자구내 포구에서 2㎞ 정도 서쪽에 떨어져 있다. 깎아지른 듯한 해안절벽과 기암괴석이 절경을 이루고 있고 섬 중앙은 평지이다. 현재 차귀도천연보호구역(천연기념물 제422호)으로 지정되어 있다. 조선 시대 지도에는 이섬이 '죽도(竹島)'로 표기되어 있다. 지금의 차귀도에 대가 많이 자라고 있어서 '죽도'라 불렀던 것으로 보인다. 출처 : 네이버 지식사전 -> http://terms.naver.com/entry.nhn?docId=763630&mobile&categoryId=1900

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.
