대구중심부를 가로질러 흐르는 신천의 둔치입니다. 80년대까지만 해도 수질이 너무 좋지않아 외면을 받았으나 1997년경 하수처리장에서 깨끗하게 정화된 물과 금호강의 자연수를 상류로 끌어들여 이제는 물과 나무가 어울어진 아름다운 휴식처가 되었습니다. 많은시민들이 걷기운동코스로 마라톤과 자전거 운동 나들이코스로 이용하고 있습니다. 그리고 중간중간에 인공생태습지를 마련하여 갈대숲이 우거지고 생태환경을 복원시켜나가는 것은 정말 놀랄만한 변화입니다.

This is an overview of 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.
