|Including Yangsan Geumo-san to its north
This is a range-line of two medium mountains that are on the border between Yangsan and Miryang
Cities of South Gyeongsang Province. They are part of the "Yeongnam Alps" sub-range famous for
tourism; and they are just north of the great Chwiseo-san (Yeongchuk-san) Tongdo-sa Monastery.
Cheontae-san is a 631-meter-high mountain, and looks south across the Nakdong River toward
Gimhae City; it is connected by its northern ridge to Geumo-san, whose summit is 730m. It is
famed for its many waterfalls, including the Ungyeon Falls on its southern flank, just below the
lovely Cheontae-ho reservoir.
Cheontae-sa 천태사 [Heavenly Platform Temple] on the southern flank of Cheontae-san is a
modern construction, but is claimed to be the original site of the Cheontae Buddhist order 天台宗,
which was established in a temple here in the 7th Century by the Korean master that studied
Tiantai Buddhism 天台宗 in Zhejiang Province of Tang China, and then imported it to Korea.
