Legend of painful unrequited love that passes down through a temple on an island, Cheongpyeong temple
Cheongpyeong temple, located at the bank of Mt.Obong, is a 10-minute distance across the island from Soyang. As of now, you can get there without riding a boat passing through the military road in the east of Mt.Obong, but many people are still visiting this place to enjoy a romantic boat ride. Cheonpyeong temple, which was built during Goryeo period, had a lot of cultural property such as ‘the hall of Paradise’, but was lost during the Korean War. Only the treasure no. 164 ‘revolving door’ is present today. The revolving door was made by the monks to perceive the meaning of reincarnation.
In Cheonpyeong temple, a story of unrequited love passes down. During Chinese Tang dynasty, one man had a crush on a princess but died with unfulfilled love. It is said that he reincarnated to a snake, coiling the princess until she became very weak. The princess ended up in Cheongpyeong temple. When she had purification ritual in Gusung falls the snake finally fell off her body. When you follow the main street of Cheong pyeong temple, you will see a sculpture of the princess and the snake, and the legendary Gusung falls that makes 9 sounds as the water falls
