Chiljang-san
the "Seven Guardians Mountain"
492m in Anseong City,
southern Gyeonggi Province
including Chilhyeon-san 516m, Deokseong-san 520m,
Hwangsaek-san 351m, Dodeok-san 366m,
Mu-i-san 463m and Gwanhae-bong 453m
"chil" means seven which is an auspicious number in traditional Korean culture, most
prominently in Buddhism  --  there are the "
Chilbo" [Seven Treasures of Enlightenment]
(a stone-stairway-bridge of Bulguk-sa was made with his theme), and "Chilbul" [Seven Great
Buddhas]
(considered as a set, who sortta supervise the universe) (refer also to Chilbul-sa, one of
Korea's most revered meditation-temples,
Chilbo-san and Chilgap-san).

"
jang", derived from the Chinese character for an Army General, means a spiritual
guardian, of the military sort, much supplicated in traditional religions for protection
from "bad fortune".  So, this name Chil-jang-san is a very auspicious one, implying that
the spirits of the seven peaks of these mountains are strong protectors for those who
live beneath them.

Chiljang-san is the center of these seven, and forms the important mountain-system
intersection where the Hannam-jeongmaek heads NW and the Geumbuk-jeongmaek
heads SW, forming minor fertile watersheds between them on Korea's west coast.  
The "
Hannam-Geumbuk-jeongmaek" Range runs from the Baekdu-daegan mountain-
system at
Sogni-san past Cheongju City to Chiljang-san, where it splits in that way.  
It is the apex of a triangle that forms
Jincheon-gun County and its sites.
Chiljang-sa
[Seven Guardians Temple]  on the eastern slope:
His square-shaped eyebrows and upper-cheeks-whiskers make this painting distinctive, and
his hair being youthful-black instead of white (or grey) is very unusual.  But the unique feature
of this icon is that the mountain-king wears a kind of necklace with seven small golden disks,
shining like jewels.  Never seen this before!  It echoes the popular "Seven Stars" deity / motif
of Korean Shamanism, and reinforces the "Seven Guardians" name-motif of this mountain.
