  • Information
    Introduction
    Hyangiram Hermitage (Cultural Property Material No. 40) is one of four Buddhist hermitages in Korea where the faithful come to pray. It was originally named Wontongam Hermitage, established by monk Wonhyo during the fourth year of Baekje King Uija’s reign (644). Wontongam Hermiatge was renamed to Geumoam Hermitage by monk Yunpil in the 9th year of Goryeo King Gwangjong’s reign (958), then renamed once again to Hyangiram Hermitage by monk Inmuk during the 41st year of Joseon King Sukjong’s reign (1715). Hyangiram Hertmitage was a base camp for Buddhist monks who helped Admiral Yi Sun-sin's battles against Japanese invasion during the Imjin War.

    The temple contains Daeungjeon Hall, Gwaneumjeon Hall, Chilseonggak Pavilion, Dokseodang House, and Chwiseongru Pavilion, all of which are well preserved. Camellias and subtropical plants surround the Bawibong Peak and Geumosan Mountain. The mountain path to Hyangiram Hermitage is very steep and it is one of the exciting mountain courses of Korea. To reach the hermitage, you will need to climb the rock at the midpoint of the trail and pass the stone gate, situated between two large rocks nearby.
