A place like this in Sejong City! Sejong city tour around Bear Tree Park, Biamsa Temple, and Yeongpyeongsa Temple
Take a look at three of Sejong's representative destinations. From north to south, it is located in the order of Bear Tree Park, Biamsa Temple, and Yeongpyeongsa Temple. You can't miss the pleasure of stopping at Gobok Reservoir in the middle of the road and enjoying the renowned catfish spicy hot spring or freshwater shrimp spicy hot spring.
Go downhill from the tropical botanical garden and you will meet the half moon tit bear garden. Small half-mooned bears with half-moon-shaped patterns on their chests gather and play together. You can also buy food and give it to the bear. It's cute to hold two feet and try to feed. Some bears turn their ears, and you can see them facing each other as if they were talking.
There is a pet park at the bottom of the half moon breast bear garden. The graceful appearance of the peacock attracts attention, and small birds chirp.
On the way to Biamsa, the first thing that greets travelers is Dokkaebi Road. Near the entrance to Biamsa Temple, there is a sign board that informs you of the “start point of Dokkaebi Road”. If you put your car gear in neutral and stand still, the car will go up a path that looks like an uphill path. This is because of the optical illusion.
On the top of the three-story stone pagoda in Biamsa, a monument to the Amita Buddha, the National Treasure No. 106, was found. The three-story stone tower itself was designated as tangible cultural property No. 3. The Yeongsanhoe gwabultanghwa, which was produced in 1657, was designated as tangible cultural property No. 12. Gwabulbultanhwa refers to a large discord that hangs in the front yard of a temple to perform a law or ritual at a temple, and Biamsa Gwabultanghwa is characterized by the precise time of creation, garden, and Bongan. The Sozo Amitabha statue, which was produced in the first half of the 17th century, is now regarded as a main Buddha for the preservation of paradise. Overall height is 196 cm. It is made of clay, not wooden, and is designated as tangible cultural property No. 13.
We stopped at Gobok Reservoir for lunch before heading to Yeongpyeongsa Temple, our last destination. In the vicinity of Gobok Reservoir, there are several restaurants that boil and sell catfish spicy and freshwater prawn spicy. I picked one of them and went in. I stopped by 10 years ago and had a freshwater shrimp soup, but now I built a new building a little far from my old seat. After meals, you can take a walk around Gobok Reservoir. When spring comes, it will taste good for a walk.
Yeongpyeongsa Temple became known for its short history compared to Gujeolcho, which blooms in the fall. In the fall, white gujeolcho flowers bloom around the temple to form a spectacular view. When Gujeolcho flowers bloom, Gujeolcho festival is held and people gather.
