The first place I want to come to Sokcho and see again is Naksan Temple. When I came by with my family, I didn’t know anything and just passed by.

Now that time has passed, I have read books and studied, and now I want to see it again.

The entrance to Naksan Temple is divided into two main entrance sections. There’s a way to get through the pine trail from the main gate parking lot to the Hongyemun Gate. And There’s a way right into the back door to the Uisangdae Pavilion.

I decided to enter the main gate this time. Last time, I went in the back door, I came out the back door. I planned to enter the front door this time and come out the back door.

The rain has weakened but it is still coloring around the temple. The drops of water on the pine tree’s leaves are hanging on the edge of the tree.

Walk up a beautiful dirt road and you’ll see Hongyemun Gate. On the way up to Hongyeomun, there is a pavilion. If you’re having a hard time coming up, it’s a good idea to take a break.

Rainbow-colored lights are dark due to rain. Avoid the rain under the eaves and stare at the raindrops. I don’t want the rain to stop. I just want to feel this rain.

A seven-story stone pagoda located in front of Wontong(bo)jeon Hall. I feel the trace of the years when I see the damaged & old pagoda.

Well, I’m glad to hear that it was safe without a serious damaged at the time of 2005 wild fire.

'The Way to Make Wish'
‘The Way to Make Wish’

The way from the Wontong(bo)jeon Hall to the Haesu Gwaneum Statue is called ‘The Way to Make Wish’. So, there are many stone pagodas with each other’s wishes.

Walking along a small forest road, there is a Haesu Gwaneum Statue that you should look up. A relatively recent statue created in the ’70s. The construction took six years, perhaps because of its large size.

Put my hands together, make a deep wish, and leave.

Enjoy the sea by circling around the Haesu Gwaneum Statue listening to the sound of the sea. I can see the endless flow of the deep Taebaek Mountains in the distance.

Finally, i came here to ‘Uisangdae Pavilion’. That dignity and form still remain.

If you come to the Naksansa temple, you can’t miss the Uisangdae, when it comes to Uisangdae, The magnificent East Sea sunrise is indispensable.

Fortunately, the building of the Uisangdae escaped from the flames in 2005. Instead, it was repaired and repaired again in 2009 due to internal corrosion.

Anyway, the Uisangdae itself has its own beauty and solemnity, but I can see the pine tree next to it more. That majestic, dignified pine tree can now be called a one body with a Uisangdae.

If you follow the path down to the left from the Uisangdae, you will find Hongryeonam. I heard that Hongryeonam, here, escaped from the flames in 2005, so that’s what the psychic powers are.

And when you enter this Hongryeonam, there is a glass hole in the bottom. It’s hard to find the bottom hole, so let’s open our eyes.

The Uisangdae is not as old as I thought. It was built in 1926 by Buddhist monk Han Yong-un when he stayed here. His romantic melts here.

If there is a pavilion, you should actually enter the pavilion rather than look at it from the outside, and look at the landscape you see it from inside.

Not from the audience’s point of view, but from the user’s point of view.

That’s how I learned it, and I try to see it that way.

Sunrise is around 7:00. Can i come in then? I’m not sure i can come here at that early morning. If i have a chance to come here again, i want to come here at the early in the morning.

I repeat the meaning of the phrase, “You can feel and feel as much as you know” and go on the back door of Naksan Temple. You never know. There’s something I don’t know yet. Maybe I missed something.

If you study more and learn more and learn new facts, you will look different and you will know. I’ll have to come back and look around slowly with a new perspective.
