Video: Cheonbulsa Temple – 천불사 (Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do)
Hello Again Everyone!!
Cheonbulsa Temple, which is located in eastern Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do, means “Heaven Buddha Temple,” in English. The temple was first built in 1974. Cheonbulsa Temple is home to one of the most amazing Gwaneum-jeon’s (The Bodhisattva of Compassion Hall) in all of Korea. As you walk up to the subterranean entrance that leads into the mountainside, you’ll pass by 33 statues of the 33 various incarnations of Gwanseeum-bosal. In addition to this shrine hall, there are numerous other shrine halls to be enjoyed at Cheonbulsa Temple like the Yongwang-dang, the main hall, the Yaksa-jeon, and the Samseong-gak shaman shrine hall.
While a bit out of the way, Cheonbulsa Temple is definitely worth a visit. So follow me, as I tour around this amazingly unique temple in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do.
