Description
Ministry of Communications is issuing these two stamps as the third part of a series of postage stamps featuring Korea`s national parks to give them broader publicity at home and abroad. The new stamps depict the following two parks:

1. Mt. Naejang National Park (Designated on November 17, 1971. Area, 75.8 sq Km): About 11km away from the Jongeup Railway Station on the Honam Line, Mt. Naejang is the seat of Naejang-sa Temple which is situated deep in a mountain valley. Towering 763m above the sea level west of the Buddhist temple is Shinsun Peak, the highest one in the area, and craggy Surae Peak. Munpil Peak and Changgun Peak rise east of the temple and Yonji Peak soars south of it. Originally build by Yongeunchosa, a Buddhist priest, in the 37th year of King Moo of Paekje, and renovated six times since then, the 1,300 year-old Naejang-sa temple was destroyed during the Korean War. Now in the precinct are only the Daewung Hall and a few accessory structures, all of which were rebuilt for the seventh time.
