    As old as 1419. Place where Yi Mongnyong (son of chief magistrate of Namwon county) saw Chunhyang (daughter of a female entertainer) on a swing and fell in love with her. Several walkways, pavilions and structures. The picture shows a portrait of the heroine Chunhyang inside her shrine. It is said that unmarried people, if pray at Chunghyangsa Shrine, will soon find a partner.

    Jirisan National Park

    The mountain range spans three provinces and includes famous peaks, valleys, temples, hiking tracks, a hot spring and variety of wildlife. Cheonwangbong is the highest peak at 1915m above the sea. We entered the park from Namwon city. Could not hike due to rain, but the scenery was amazing. During autumn, maple trees give a reddish tinge to the surroundings, and low-floating clouds make it look like a fairy tale.
