Geumgoksa Temple – 금곡사 (Gangjin, Jeollanam-do)

Sun, 2023-11-12 23:24
The “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple,” the Daeung-jeon Hall, and the Cheonbul-jeon Hall at Geumgoksa Temple in Gangjin, Jeollanam-do. Temple History

Geumgoksa Temple is located in northern Gangjin, Jeollanam-do in the foothills of Mt. Ilbongsan (411.8 m). According to some, Geumgoksa Temple was first founded during the reign of Queen Seondeok of Silla (r. 632 – 647 A.D.) by a Silla monk named Milbon. At this time, it’s believed that the temple was called Seongmunsa Temple. However, this story seems unlikely, as the land that Geumgoksa Temple is situated upon belonged to the Baekje Kingdom (18 B.C. – 660 A.D.). So it doesn’t make a ton of sense that a Silla monk would travel to Baekje Kingdom land to found a Buddhist temple.

Much later, and according to the “Donggukyeojiseungram,” which was compiled in 1481, the temple was finally referred to as Geumgoksa Temple. In 1592, Geumgoksa Temple was used as a training ground for part of the Righteous Army during the Imjin War (1592-98). Geumgoksa Temple was destroyed by fire during the Imjin War by the invading Japanese. The temple wouldn’t be rebuilt until Japanese Colonial Rule (1910-45) upon the former temple site. The temple would further be rebuilt and expanded in 1969. Then in 1984, Geumgoksa Temple became a Taego-jong Order temple.

As for the name of the temple, it’s called Geumgoksa Temple because there was a former gold mine in the area. In fact, there is a cave, whose depths are unknown, next to a stream near the temple grounds. This could be the source of the temple’s name.

Geumgoksa Temple is home to a Korean Treasure, the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #829.

Temple Layout

You first make your way up towards Geumgoksa Temple through a couple of large boulders on either side of the road leading up to the temple. To the right of the temple parking lot is a serene stream. Up a large set of stairs, you’ll find the five metre tall “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple.” The large pagoda consists of a single-story stylobate at the base. Above the stout base is the body, which stands three-stories in height. Unfortunately, the finial which once adorned the top of the pagoda has been lost through the passage of time, and the pagoda has been damaged in part throughout. More specfically, the stylobate consists of four pillars at the edge with a flat stone between these pillars. This style of construction with corner pillars without a pattern engraved on it is similar to the “Five-Story Stone Pagoda at Jeongnimsa Temple Site” in Buyeo, Chungcheongnam-do. The first story of this pagoda, the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple,” has a niche on all four sides. Typically in a wooden pagoda, the niche would function as a place to house an image of a Buddha. However, in a stone structure, it appears to be more decorative than anything. Overall, the pagoda has beautiful proportions. The “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple” was built during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392); however, it still retains some stylistic aspects from the Baekje Kingdom (18 B.C. – 660 A.D.).

Framing the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple” is the Daeung-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to the Daeung-jeon Hall are adorned with fading Shimu-do (Ox-Herding Murals) and Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life). Of the two, the Shim-do are placed below those of the Palsang-do. At the front of the main hall, you’ll find two decorative dragons on either side of the signboard with long, white whiskers. There is also some beautiful floral latticework adorning the front of the Daeung-jeon Hall, as well. Stepping inside the main hall, you’ll find a triad of statues under a large, red canopy. Resting in the centre of this triad is an image of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This central statue is joined on either side by Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). On either side of the main altar are a pair of paintings. To the right is an image dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint); and to the left, you’ll find an image dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars). To the left of the mural dedicated to Chilseong is a mural dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit), who rests on the back of a rather large tiger. And to the right of the mural dedicated to Dokseong is a Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) mural. The final mural in the Daeung-jeon Hall is a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) hanging on the far left wall.

To the immediate right of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the Jijang-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this shrine hall; which, rather surprisingly, doesn’t have a signboard above its central entranceway, are adorned with various murals that include an all-white Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion), as well as a set of murals depicting the life-cycle. Stepping inside this shrine hall, you’ll find an image of Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) on the main altar. This central image is accompanied by the Siwang (The Ten Kings of the Underworld).

To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall, on the other hand, is the Cheonbul-jeon Hall. The exterior walls are adorned with murals dedicated to the Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). The front doors to this shrine hall are adorned with cartoonish Gwimyeon (Monster Masks). Stepping inside the Cheonbul-jeon Hall, you’ll find a thousand green porcelain images of the Buddha. Resting on the main altar, and fronting these one thousand green Buddhas, is a large solitary image of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha).

The final structure at Geumgoksa Temple that visitors can explore is the Jong-ru Pavilion out in front of the Cheonbul-jeon Hall. This wooden pavilion houses a large bronze bell. The other three traditional Buddhist percussion instruments are absent from this Jong-ru Pavilion.

How To Get There

From the Gangjin Intercity Bus Teriminal, you’ll need to take the “Nongeo-chon – 농어촌 6” bus or the “Nongeo-chon – 농어촌 12” bus. After 10 stops, or 15 minutes, you’ll need to get off at the “Geumgoksa – 금곡사” bus stop. After that, you’ll be right at the temple.

Overall Rating: 6/10

Geumgoksa Temple is beautifully located in the folds of the base of the mountain with a stream to the east. Besides its beautiful location, the obvious highlight to the temple is the Goryeo-era “Three-Story Stone Pagoda of Geumgoksa Temple.” While partially damaged, the three-story structure still exudes its original beauty. In addition to this welcoming pagoda, the main hall beautiful modern depictions of the three most popular shaman deities. Also have a look up at the signboard of the Daeung-jeon Hall at the large, whiskered decorative dragons.

Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site – 영암사지 (Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Wed, 2023-11-08 23:20
The Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site in Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do. Temple Site History

The Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site is located on the southern slopes of Mt. Hwangmaesan (1,113 m) in southwestern Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do. The temple is believed to date back to the Silla Dynasty (57 B.C. – 935 A.D); however, the exact date as to when the temple was first established is unknown. According to historical records, the monk Jeogyeon-daesa (932-1014) stayed at the temple until his death at the age of 83. Another indicator of the temple’s origins can be discerned from the style of the temple. The style of the temple indicates that it was grounded in esoteric Buddhism, which was popular in the late Silla Dynasty (57 B.C. – 935 A.D.).

In 1984, an archaeological team excavated part of the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site. During that time, the main hall was discovered. In addition to the main hall, an attached building was also discovered. The archaeologists also discovered that the three-story pagoda, the stone lantern, and the main hall were all placed in a straight line. Also, in a neighbouring clearing, a pair of stele were located on either side of another shrine hall. In total, it was discovered through these archaeological efforts that the main hall had been rebuilt three separate times. Besides these discoveries, numerous other things were located on the temple site, as well. These included foot stones and roof tiles that dated back to the end of Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.) and up to the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). Also, a Gilt-bronze Standing Buddha that was created in the 8th century was also excavated at the site, which helps us to better understand when the temple was first founded.

Another interesting feature of the temple, which gives archaeologists a better understanding of the temple, are the artifacts that still remain at the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site like the stone stairs on either side of the central main hall platform. The stone retaining walls for the foundation of the main hall feature stone reliefs with human and animal faces on them. Not only is it rare to have the stone stairs remain at such a historic temple site, but designs on the stairs like the pair of Gareungbinga (Kalavinka) on the northern stairs are unique, as well.

In total, the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site is home to three Korean Treasures. They are the “Twin Lion Stone Lantern at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” which is Korean Treasure #353; the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” which is Korean Treasure #480; and the “Tortoise-Shaped Pedestal at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” which is Korean Treasure #489. In addition to these three Korean Treasure, the temple site itself, the “Yeongamsa Temple Site,” is designated as a Historic Site.

Temple Site Layout

When you first approach the temple site grounds from the east, you’ll notice several stone foundations to numerous auxiliary buildings that once stood out in front of the temple. Making your way up to the next plateau, you’ll find even more elevated pieces of earth and foundation stones. These were corridors that probably acted as a stairway that led up to the final plateau that housed the main shrine halls at Yeongnamsa Temple. These large retaining walls that separate the three plateaus at the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site are a beautiful blend of old and new stones to help reconstruct the basic outline of the former temple.

Now standing on the third, and final plateau, with the beautiful Mt. Hwangmaesan as a backdrop, you’ll notice a three-story pagoda in the centre. This is the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” which is Korean Treasure #480. The pagoda is presumed to date back to the 9th century, when the temple was first built. It’s located in front of the main shrine hall. In 1969, the pagoda was discovered, but it had collapsed. Subsequently, the pagoda was reassembled, and it now stands 3.8 metres in height. It has a two-tier base and a three-story body. It’s missing its decorative finial top. The pagoda resembles the traditional Silla-era design. Additionally, the second and third story of the pagoda are significantly smaller than the first story body stone. But overall, the body seems both balanced and well-preserved.

To the right and left of the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda at Yeongamsa Temple Site” are foundations for corridors and auxiliary buildings. It’s to the rear of the pagoda that you find two sets of narrow stones on either side of a final stone retaining wall. Be careful when climbing these stairs because the stones are quite narrow.

Standing on the final raised section of the temple site grounds, you’ll first find the “Twin Lion Stone Lantern at Yeongamsa Temple Site.” This stone lantern is believed to have first been erected on the temple site sometime during Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.) during the 9th century. In 1933, the Japanese, during Japanese Colonial Rule (1910-1945), tried to take this stone lantern, but the local villagers resisted these attempts. Fortunately, it was kept, and ultimately preserved, at the local township (myeon) office. The “Twin Lion Stone Lantern at Yeongamsa Temple Site” was eventually relocated back to the temple site in 1959, after a former hermitage was built at the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site. As for the design of the stone lantern, the light chamber is set in the middle of the lantern with a three-tiered base and a crowning capstone. The light chamber is octagonal in shape and built in the traditional Unified Silla design. However, what sets it apart is the twin lion stone statues support the light chamber. The twin lions stand atop a base stone that has a lotus design engraved on it. The lions’ back claws are stepping on top of the base stone, while the front claws hold up the upper stone lion chamber with their heads facing upwards. Overall, the design of the lions is quite realistic. As for the light chamber, the exterior is adorned with the four images of the Four Heavenly Kings.

To the rear of the “Twin Lion Stone Lantern at Yeongamsa Temple Site” is the Geumdang-ji, which is the main hall site at the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site. There are fragmentary stone artifacts remaining on the surface of the Geumdang-ji. This includes the stone base for the main altar. Rather interestingly, and unlike most other temple sites, the Geumdang-ji retains some of its unique features like the stairs on either side of the middle portion of the embankments. While the southern set of stairs and their railings seem a little worse for wear, the northern set seem pretty well preserved all things considered. And if you look close enough, you’ll notice that both railings are adorned with what appear to be Gareungbinga (Kalavinka). Also, the stone retaining wall that is keeping the Geumdang-ji embankment in place is adorned with various stone reliefs that include human faces, animals, and even what looks to be either a tiger or lion. This engravings are quite remarkable and surprising at first glance.

To the far right of the Geumdang-ji, you’ll notice the temple site’s stone basin. It’s also in this area that there are the remains of a former auxiliary building, as well. But it’s to the left rear of the Geumdang-ji, and unmarked, that you’ll find another clearing. This clearing houses the “Tortoise-Shaped Pedestal at Yeongamsa Temple Site.” This clearing is known as the West Geumdang-ji area of the temple site grounds. Out in front of the embankment for the former shrine hall, you’ll find a stone pillar with a base. This stone pillar with base was probably the base for a stone lantern. And on either side of the embankment, you’ll find the two “Tortoise-Shaped Pedestal at Yeongamsa Temple Site.” These two stele remain without their body stones and their capstones. The eastern stele has its back engraved with hexagonal patterns, while the rectangular supporting stone for the main body is carved with a cloud-like design. And while this stele has an overall look of a tortoise, it has the head of a dragon with an outstretched neck. In its mouth, it holds a magic orb. The western stele, on the other hand, is also engraved with hexagonal patterns on its back. The supporting stone for the main body is engraved with panel decorations on its four sides and lotus petals around its edges. This western stele is slightly smaller and thinner than the neighbouring eastern stele. While the identities of who the stele’s were dedicated to are unknown, it’s believed that both were built during the 9th century during Unified Silla (668-935 A.D.).

How To Get There

There is simply no easy way to get to the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site by public transportation. If you take a bus, it could take you over two hours to get to the temple site. With that being said, the easiest way to get to the Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site is by car. And if you don’t have a car, you can take a taxi from the Hapcheon Intercity Bus Terminal; however, the taxi ride will take about 30 minutes, or 27 km, and it’ll cost you about 35,000 won (one way).

Overall Rating: 6.5/10

The Yeongamsa-ji Temple Site is beautifully situated below the picturesque peaks of Mt. Hwangmaesan. This ideal location is beautifully blended with an assortment of Korean Treasures that include the “Twin Lion Stone Lantern at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” the “Three-Story Stone Pagoda at Yeongamsa Temple Site,” and the “Tortoise-Shaped Pedestal at Yeongamsa Temple Site.” All put together, the temple site has a beautiful symmetry in an amazing location.

In an era of increasing globalization and information exchange, the demand for English education is experiencing an unprecedented rise. In turn, more English educators are sought after around the world than ever before as proficiency in English proves instrumental in the effective exchange of information, as well as survival, in this competitive climate.

  To meet such demand, the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), a university known for its leading role as a powerhouse of foreign language programs, established the Graduate School of TESOL (GS TESOL). The GS TESOL intends to nurture English teaching specialists who take proactive and pragmatic approaches to the application of theory, research, and development in the field of English language learning and teaching.

  Additionally, the GS TESOL trains educators to develop various kinds of English educational content using information technologies and continues to push for fundamental research that will help accumulate and develop professional knowledge. Our exchange programs with prestigious universities around the world also offer students opportunities to experience studying in an academic setting overseas and to build skills that will enhance their current study as well as future personal and professional plans.

My Son Reacts to a REAL Korean Food Alleyway

Wed, 2023-11-01 19:24

Tongin Market is an outdoor marketplace in Seoul that's kind of like a pay-as-you-go buffet, where you choose only what you want from several of the vendors in a long alleyway. One thing that makes this place unique is that you can also pay using traditional coins, called 엽전, which makes the experience more memorable and fun. I went there together with my son and we ate until we were full, and then ate some more. (This video is not sponsored.)
