Ichadon (이차돈) Continued

Martyrdom of Ichadon, Baegyulsa Temple

Martyrdom of Ichadon, Baegyulsa Temple

My wife and I went out for a short hike yesterday on Mt. Geumgansan (금강산) to get some exercise and enjoy a bit of the Spring weather.  As I’d just posted on the legend of of Ichadon (이차돈), I figured we’d take walk up to Baegyulsa Temple (배귤사), which was built on the spot where his head supposedly landed.   As we were walking past the temple bell, didn’t I notice that it had a cast relief image of Ichadon with his head flying off!  I’m posting it here for curiosity’s sake.  As Baegyulsa Temple deserves a whole post of it’s own, I’ll have more info on it up here soon (I hope).
