According to myths, Cheonmasan Mountain is assumed to be the place where a horse has fallen from heaven. There is a total of 44 beautiful sculptural works on display at the sculpture park inside the mountain. You might wonder how impressive it would be to have artwork in the middle of the mountain.
Walk slowly to the hiking trail that takes about 30 minutes, and you will stop by the two Buddhist temples of Gwanyongsa and Daewonsa. You can also walk around the small precincts and recharge your tranquility. Leaving the two temples behind, hike up further to reach Cheonmasan Sculpture Park. The hiking trail is flat and easy to hike on. Moreover, the air is natural and clean, allowing your entire body to be refreshed during your walk.
As you enjoying the various sculptural works made by various artists, you will be moved by their outstanding technique and talent.
Detailed explanations are also provided to help visitors understand what the artist envisioned.
