in the southern part of Wok-ak Mountain National Park Hwang-Jang
Mountain, it is also called Yak-sa-jeong Village.
As for the origin
of the village name, there is a folklore that it became Yak-sa-jeong
because there was Yak-sa stone Buddha at the temple site where a
temple on the hill behind the village called Yak-san Temple was
turned into ruins. Together with the myth, it is a village with
history of the name of Donro-Myun. Yak-san Temple site and Yak-sa
stone Buddha are still in the village.
It is a 70cm high
sedentary Buddha statue without the head, located in the middle
of a field. Lotus patterns on lower ground stone and upper ground
stone are delicate yet heavily worn down. Lower ground stone is
in a square form and ground-facing lotuses are carved on it. On
top of it is an octagonal stand for middle ground stone but the
middle ground stone is gone. On top of that is an octagonal sky-facing
lotus and a portion of upper ground stone is placed in a damaged
state. A Buddha statue in lotus posture is enshrined on top. The
drapery is not clear due to effacement, and there is a hole in the
rear side where a halo was attached.
The mudra is in unity
mudra, and the name seems to be Vairocana Buddha. Around it are
trimmed foundation stones where a royal palace had once been.
