[About Sansuyu]
Sansuyu or also known as the Korean cornel dogwood tree originates from Korea and China. Gurye was where the Sansuyu tree was first planted and Gurye produces about 73% of the domestic sansuyu. Especially famous in Jirisan Mountain, the tree blooms beautiful yellow flowers during the spring, but in the fall it produces red berries which are commonly used as a medical plant.

[About Hwaeomsa Temple]
Hwaeomsa Temple is a Buddhist temple located in Jirisan Mountain. Literally meaning “Flower Garland Temple” from Flower Garland Sutra, this temple was founded in 544 C.E. Famous for its beautiful spring flowers and fall foliage scenery, this temple is also home to several national treasures such as the Gakhwangjeon Hall (one of the largest Buddhist halls in Korea) and the Stone Lantern (the largest stone lantern known to be made in the 7th century).
