|Good views of these famous cliffs, on an overcast day in April 2011.
The temple Cheongryeon-sa is visible on the left.
|Government sign showing views of the four seasons here (a favorite Korean landscape motif), and a close-up of
the main cliff. Notice how in the longest section down from the highest part, it almost looks like a standing
statue of Mireuk-bul [Maitreya the Future Buddha] -- the top rocks as his pagoda-like crown, the squarish face
rounded-at-the-top (lighter, yellowish high patch), hands folded-together across the middle, recessed broken parts
as feet...? Compare this Goryeo-era Mireuk-bul statue in Buyeo, and see this explanation of cliff-buddhas.
