Naejangsan Temple (Yeongeun Temple Site, Local Monument No. 63) During the 37th year of King Muwang's reign in Baekje Dynasty, the Great Founder Yeongeun established about 50 Daegaram in today's Budojeon region and named it Yeongeunsa Temple.
Byeokryeonam Temple is located 330m high from the ground level on Seoraebong Peak. It was built by the Great Master Hwanhae during the 20th year of King Uija's reign (660), and called as Naejangsan Temple. The name was changed to Byeokryeonam Temple as the former Youngeunsa Temple was renamed to Naejangsa Temple. Long before the change of the name, Calligrapher Chusa Kim Jung-hee was training in the temple and recommended to change the name from Baekryeonam to Byeokryeonam. He received a pledge and left it in his writing but, it was destroyed during the Korean War. There is a myth that says Buddhist Monk Heemook threw stones from the top of Seoraebong Peak, and Heecheon, his best pupil, caught the stones to build the embankment of Byeokryeonam.
It is designated as a Beautiful Walkway to Preserve for 22nd Century, and truly the highlight of the entire Autumn Trees Road in Naejangsan Mountain.
From Iljumoon to Naejangsa Temple, there are 108 autumn trees along the pathway, and visitors can find peace of mind while walking through the trees.
It is the first Exploration Information Booth of the National Park. All the information on the natural ecology and exploration sites in Naejangsan Mountain National Park are gathered in the center. The center also has exhibition halls and an audiovisual room, and is the place one must visit before exploring the National Park.
Located in the center of Naejangsan Mountain, Uhwajeong Pavilion is where the water from Geumseon Valley and Weonjeok Valley meets to form a fantastic scenery of a lake deep in the mountain. Many photographers visit the place for its beautiful sceneries as well.
