■Introductions of tourist spots
It was located in 26km southwest of Hwasun-eup. It is believed that Unjusa and a thousand Buddhas and pagodas were built in the end of the Unified Silla Period by the Buddhist monk Doseon. According to topology, he thought this temple needed a sail and shipmaster because it shaped like a ship. He, therefore, built thousand Buddhas and pagodas. The name, ‘Thousand Buddhas and Thousand Pagodas’ originated from it.
