Opened in June 2009. As you approach the access to the Olle, you will find the Modern Korean Poetry Yukpil Park (Road of the Poet), whose signboard is handwritten by the poet, to your right. A little past this park, you will find the Daegu Bangjja Yugi (Korean Bronzeware) Museum to your left. You can see the works of Bongju Lee, important intangible cultural asset #77 in this museum. (Free admittance, closed every Monday) Walking past the Bukjisangsa Temple signpost, a group of tall pine trees will greet you. The pine forest continues for a while. This is the highlight of Mt. Palgongsan Course #1. Bukjisangsa Temple at the end of this road used to be a very big temple, one of whose branch temple was Donghwasa Temple, but it looks rather simple now. The central building, Daewungjeon, is designated as Treasure No. 805. This unique rectangular building is elegant and firm. Right now it is being repaired. I am very much looking forward to seeing the new Bukjisangsa Temple.
