Sanbangsan Mountain 산방산, 山房山 Attraction

218-10, Sanbang-ro, Andeok-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do 제주특별자치도 서귀포시 안덕면 산방로 218-10 (안덕면)

The Sanbangsa Temple and also the Bomunsa Temple, which holds the relics of Buddha, are also located on the mountain. Walk along the stone-steps between the two temples and you will find the Sanbanggulsa Grotto. A signal beacon called ‘Yeondae’ in Korean stands at the roadside in front of the mountain, which, in the past, used to fire and smoke to relay urgent messages. Regarding function, it is similar to the more well-known ‘Bongsudae’ signal beacons; but ‘Yeondae’ beacons were built around hilly or coastal areas while ‘Bongsudae’ beacons were built on mountain tops. During the daytime, smoke was used to send warning signals, while fire was used at night.

We didn't climb up the peak, just visit and pray at the temple.

Anyway, since I can’t climb Sanbangsan, I might as well visit this temple. Like the few temples I’d visited in Korea, the temple has an open concept with several buildings like the one below and Buddhist statues here and there.

Oh, they have separate admission fees for 산방산 Sanbangsan and 용머리해안 Yongmeori Coast . KRW1000 for 산방산 Sanbangsan and KRW2000 for 용머리해안 Yongmeori Coast , if you just want to visit either one of them. It will be KRW2500 if you visit the two places together. If I did not remember wrongly, there is also another ticket counter at 용머리해안 Yongmeori Coast .
