Mannyeon Buddhist Temple
Walking an hour from the dock of Bulseom, Docho-myeon, and passing Kimhae-origin Kim's family mountain, people can visit Mannyeon temple in the middle of Yongdang mountain. The temple was built in 400-pyeong area with 45-pyeong (7 buildings) floor space by Ms. Guinyeo Moon's sincere belief in Buddha and Buddhists' cooperation. It is relatively big Jogyejong temple with about 160 Buddhists.
According to the legend, a mysterious-looking old man passing by this area before the temple was built said, "by looking at the shape of the mountain, if a temple is built here, it will be prosperous for 10,000 years and the water will not dry even in the drought" and thus, a temple was built and named as Mannyeon (phonetically 10,000 years in Korean) temple. It is a quiet and small temple with birds singing and streams running.
