Mt. Nangsan has a long history, even though the hill only 104 meters high.
Silla people never cut the trees on this hill, as they believed mountain spirits would come down.
This is also where Baekyeol, the great composer of Silla, led a clean and destitute life by getting away from the world outside.
Also, Choi Chi-won, a great writer, had his home here.
Around Mt. Nangsan, are the royal tombs of king Seondeok, Sinmun and Hyogong. Located here is also the Neungji Pagoda where King Munmu was cremated.
Many temple sites were scattered around as well.
