Gasan Rock, Gyeongbuk

가산산성 서북쪽 성벽 사이에 위치한 바위로서 가암이라고 부르기도 합니다. 이 바위는 지면에서 10m 상단면적은 대략 270㎡ 규모의 넓은 평면으로 되어 있으며 사방을 훤히 전망할 수 있어 대구시의 전경을 한 눈에 볼 수 있습니다. 바위 상단 동쪽단면에는 큰구명이 나 있는데 전설에 의하면 신라시대 고승이었던 도선(827~898)이 산천을 편력하면서 지기를 잡기위해 이 구멍에다 쇠로 만든 소와 말의 형상을 묻어 지기를 눌렀다고 합니다. 대구경북일원의 많은 시민들이 찾는 곳입니다.

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.
