On a hill behind Hwaeomsa Temple in Jirisan Mountain stands the Three-Story Four-Lion Stone Pagoda(National Treasure No.35). The four lions of the pagoda look very impressive while the gorgeous shapes of the celestial maids inscribed on the pedestal and the main body of the pagoda display the artistic skills of Unified Silla. Furthermore, the sculpted figures inside the pagoda draw the attention of visitors: A woman is standing within a space of the pagoda and a male monk is kneeling down, holding a bowl in his hand, within a space of the stone lantern facing the pagoda. It is said that the monk is the Buddhist Priest Yeongi who founded the temple, the woman his mother. The figures depict the priest serving tea to his mother. Why not visit Hwaeomsa in Jirisan Mountain now, when the spring flowers are in full bloom, and think about the monk's love of his mother.
