About Dosolam Hermitage

Dosolam Hermitage is located on a rock near Dosolbong Peak on the western summit of Dalmasan Mountain. Initially, it is said that it was the place where the founder of Mihwangsa Temple, Uihwa-sang, practiced Taoism and enjoyed the sunset. At the bottom of the hermitage, there is a dragon story recorded in Dongguk Yeoji Seungham. Yongdam is a spring in a cave that can accommodate four to five adults, and it does not dry out all year round and has clear water, making you feel mysterious.


Yongdam is one of the few "spring from the sky" in Korea along with "Cheonjangsaem" in Sanbanggulsa Temple in Jeju Island. In front of Dosolam Hermitage, there is Myeonbyeok Rock, which seems to be a monk doing Myeonbyeokdo, and Sinseonam Hermitage, where gods played Go.


Many monks from all over the country visit Dosolam Hermitage, and it is said that they stand in awe when they see the sunrise that turns red off the coast of Wando after the early morning ritual or when they see the sea of the West Sea under the fiery sunset. The sky, which is red with the tide, is like Dosolcheon Stream, the essence of Maitreya Bodhisattva. The monks praying here praise and boast that it is a beautiful place to pray.
