Wangdae Temple belongs to the Wonhyo Order and is located in Boryeong City South Chungcheong Province. The King Gyeongsun of Silla, the last king, stayed at Wangdae Mountain shortly on the way to meet the King Wanggun of Goryeo, thus named Wangdae Temple. Although the temple is small in size, you can see Daecheon Harbor and the Seohae Bridge opening your heart wide to breathe in the wind and landscape.
The temple appeared on SBS Capture the Moment How is that Possible last November with fog’s eggs hatched into tadpole since which the biologists still have not found the cause. A story goes that a geomancy specialist dropped by and said the temple was in a perfect location which releases good energy. As if to prove it, the roses around the temple bloomed in winter and the rare plants between the rocks came into bearing.
“The temple has been known as magical for a long time and people say that their wishes are fulfilled when pray at the temple. If you stand on the sanctuary hall towards the Yong Rock with your hands together, you can feel the energy of the mountain and theearth pouring into your body.”
Chief Monk Dosun uses this energy to draw dragon Bodhidharmawhich he saw in his dream that it was 100 meter long with four mustaches, horns and teeth with golden scale on the body. “Wangdae Temple has a thousand years of history and people gather to pray their wish to be fulfilled. As the chief monk of the temple, I feel proud and I pay for them to fulfill their wishes.”
