Naksansa Temple is north of Naksan Beach on Obongsan Mountain, and was built by Ui-Sang during the Silla period after he received the revelation of the Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. Uisangdae Pavilion, built on a cliff above the ocean, is located at the spot where Ui-Sang spent days meditating. Hongnyeonam Hermitage was built to worship the Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, said to have risen from the sea nearby on a red lotus. Naksansa Temple is one of the four largest temples in the nation to Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva.
