The millennium bell in Yudal-San Park above Mokpo, South Korea


Wind your way up the hill behind Mokpo’s harbor and fish market until you reach Yudal-San Park, where you’ll find pavilions, stone carvings on the mountainside, small temples, a botanical garden, an outdoor sculpture park, and this gigantic bell.

The huge new millennium bell hangs in a pavilion below Nojeok-bong hill.

    The people who built these places put a lot of thought and effort into each little detail, unlike today we just put up four walls and a roof and we’re happy with that.

    Thanks for sharing those beautiful images I hope to stop by there and take some photos someday.
