Introduction
Jeokseoksa Temple is a traditional Buddhist temple that was founded around 1,600 years ago. It is known for "Gamrojeong", which is the water trickling out from the rock crevices on the east side of Daeungjeon Hall (main temple building). While the water is cool and sweet, legend has it that it dries up or turns murky in times of national crisis. According to the records, Palman Daejanggyeong (Tripitaka Koreana printing woodblocks) used to be kept in Jeokseoksa before they were moved to Baengnyeongsa Temple, then to Jeondeungsa Temple, and finally to Haeinsa Temple.

Meanwhile, Jeokseoksa is connected to Nakjodae Observatory, which offers a magnificent view of the sun setting over the West Sea. In fact, the view is so magnificent that it is admired as one of the 10 best sceneries of Ganghwa.
