Details

Worasan Mountain, named for its shape of a rising moon, is a favorite resting place for Jinju citizens.

Also called Daleumsan Mountain, Worasan Mountain was designated as an urban green park on March 6, 1986. Located 10 minutes from town, it is formed from many hills and has a beautiful small forest making it the favorite mountain of family hikers. It is only 482m high, perfect for half a day course.

The top of the mountain is Jangundae (482m). Jangundae has been the alter for the rain calling ceremony of the inhabitants of Geumsan, Munsan and Jinseong-myeon, and was the military headquarters where General Kim Deokryeong defeated Japanese invaders with the wooden castle during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592.

Though there are Cheonryong-sa (Buddhist temple) on the eastern side and Dubang-sa on the south, Cheonggok-sa on the western side of the mountain is better known to people. Dense forest and tea plants are spread around these temples.
