|Tapsa Temple (마이산 탑사)|
|Tapsa (탑사), in Jinan-gun, Jeollabuk-do, is an example of the amazing accomplishments an individual can achieve when properly motivated. Tapsa is a temple where a man named ‘Gapryong Lee’, a retired scholar built numerous pagodas one stone at a time over a period of decades. There are some marvelous towers, such as Cheonjitap, Obangtap, Ilgwangtap and Wolgwangtap, which are so tall and massive it’s hard to believe they were erected by just one man. It is said that he built 108 towers over 30 years from 1885, but only 80 of them remain today.|
