  • Information
    Introduction
    Nestled under Gwanbong Peak sits Seonbonsa Temple, under the administration of traditional Korean Buddhists. This temple is widely known as the ‘Palgongsan Gatbawi Stone Buddha.’ Despite nearby precipitous drops, the Gatbawi Stone Buddha is very popular. The Gatbawi Stone Buddha from the United Silla Kingdom is roughly 6 meters tall. The name ‘Gatbawi’ comes from the traditional cylindrical Korean hat that the Buddha wears upon his head.
