Buddhist Figures and Geumcheok-ri Tombs

 

The commanding grand Buddhist triad stands at the mountain in the rear of Dudae-ri.

It consists of a 2.5 meter-high main Buddha and has minor Buddha on both sides.

It was created in the mid-8th century, the high-point in Silla history.

Forty tombs of various sizes are scattered throughout the village.

According to legend, a mystic golden ruler that can bring the dead back to life is hidden in one the tombs.
