Description
The Ministry of Communications is issuing these two stamps as the first part of a series of postage stamps featuring 10 most famous sightseeing places in the Republic of Korea.

2. Mt. Sorak (Kejo-am): An annex to Sinheung-sa Temple, Kejo-am was built by Jajang Yulsa, a Buddhist priest, in the ninth year of Queen Sondok of Silla 1,300 years ago, in a cave at the foot of towering rocky peak named Ulsan Bawi in the northern part of the temple. In front of Kejo-am rests a boulder measuring 2.5 meters in diameter. Nicknamed a "Swaying Rock," it sways at the slight nudge though it is so heavy that a hundred of people can hardly lift it.
