산방산 : 2011년 6월 30일 문화재청이 쇠소깍, 외돌개과 함께

국가지정문화재 명승으로 지정했다.

제주 서귀포시 안덕면(安德面) 사계리(沙溪里) 해안에 있는 종상화산(鐘狀火山)이며
높이 395m으로, 조면암질 안산암으로 구성되어 있으며 그 형태가 특이하다.
남서쪽 기슭, 해발고도 200m 지점에 산방굴(山房窟)이라는 자연 석굴이 있다.
그 안에 불상을 안치하였기 때문에 이 굴을 산방굴사(山房窟寺)라고도 한다.
굴 내부 천장 암벽에서 떨어지는 물방울은 산방산의 암벽을 지키는
여신 ‘산방덕(山房德)’이 흘리는 사랑의 눈물이라는 전설이 있다.
산의 남쪽 해안에는 성산포층(城山浦層)이 노출되어 있고 심한 해식(海蝕)으로
단애(斷崖)가 형성된 암석해안을 이룬다.
여기에 하멜 표류 기념탑(漂流記念塔)이 있다.

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.
