    Introduction
    Constructed during the eighth year of King Gyeongdeok of the Silla dynasty (749), Mihwangsa Temple is located on the western side of Dalmasan Mountain (489m), titled the Geumgangsan Mountain of the Southern Sea. The temple is situated the furthest south of all temples in the Korean peninsula. Beautiful sunsets and the view of the graceful Dalmasan Mountain from the temple attracts numerous visitors. The foot of the mountain found behind the temple blends well with the suitable-sized temple and the appearance of Daeungbojeon Hall gives out an aura of comfort and tranquility. The cornerstone of Daeungbojeon Hall is carved with sea creatures, such as turtles and crabs that cannot be observed elsewhere. Moreover, you can observe various attractions and treasures, such as the Hanging Painting of Mihwangsa Temple (Treasure No. 1342), where people pray for rain during the dry season. Other attractions include 18th century murals on the walls of Daeungbojeon and Unginjeon Halls.
