[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Geumdang Sa is a couple hundred metres below the reservoir, on the way to Tapsa Temple, its more well known cousin further up Maisan (the twin peaks of Horses Ears Mountain(s). This is a fairly typical Korean Buddhist temple, with the added bonus of the cyan wall murals contrasting against the red roof.
