Video: Samyeongam Hermitage – 사명암 (Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do)
Hello Again Everyone!!
Another beautiful hermitage that’s located on the Tongdosa Temple grounds is the amazing Samyeongam Hermitage. A personal favourite of mine, Samyeongam Hermitage was named after the warrior monk, Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610). The hermitage was first constructed in 1573. With a beautiful, large Koi pond that’s spanned by a granite bridge, Samyeongam Hermitage is occupied with a large main hall, a Samseong-gak shaman shrine hall, and a Josa-jeon (Founders’ Hall) with a mural of Samyeong-daesa inside. The hermitage is especially beautiful during the spring months, when it seems like the entire grounds are in bloom.
So follow me around a personal favourite of mine, as I tour around Samyeongam Hermitage in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do.
