Video: Cheongryeonam Hermitage – 청련암 (Geumjeong-gu, Busan)

Hello Again Everyone!!

Located on the Beomeosa Temple grounds in northern Busan, Cheongryeonam Hermitage means “Blue Lotus Hermitage,” in English. Not only is the hermitage the home to the Buddhist martial art Seonmudo, but it’s also the home to the most elaborate outdoor shrine dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). This bronze coloured statue dedicated by Jijang-bosal is surrounded by equally elaborate statues dedicated the Ten Kings of the Underworld and a collection of Bicheon (Flying Heavenly Deities) and a row of granite zodiac generals. It’s really something else to see.

Any trip to Beomeosa Temple almost demands a visit to Cheongryeonam Hermitage. So take the time and enjoy both; but first, take a look at what you’re missing in this video.
