The last place is Yongyeonsa Temple. It is located in the northen part of the Biseul Mountains. It was established by high buddhish Teacher Boyangseona in the Unified

Silla Kingdom, and rebuilt by Cheonildaesa in Choson Dynasty. However, most parts of the temple were destroyed during the Japanese Invasion. The temple was rebuilt several times and existing 17 buildings have preserved since they were rebuilt in 1726. Yongyeonsa has one of the Shakyamuni's sariras. It is enshrined in the back yard of Jeokmyeolbogung, the main building of the temple. After the high Monk Jajangyulsa had brought it, the temple became much more famous. It is designated as Treasure Number 539. Around the temple, we can see the Okyeonji Reservoir. This reservoir was known as a good place to fish so many fishermen visited this. In spring, you can also see cherry trees blossoming along the both sides of the gateway. However, it is autumn. We can't see the cherry.

There are many tourist attractions in Daegu, but a lot of Daegu citizen don't know about these places. We hope for these tourist attractions to be known to citizen and to be places where many tourists will visit.
