After 2 days of impossible wars, the next day (25th, October, 2010), was a relaxing day that the association had promised to bring everyone of over 70 people for sightseeing.
The first stop was to Tongdosa (通度寺), literally mean Salvation of the world through mystery of truth; was also the head temple of Jogye Order (曹溪宗) of Korean Buddhism and in the southern part of Mt. Chiseosan near Yangsan City, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea.
Just immediate to where the lunch took place, there was a small museum opened to public exhibited many calligraphies and paintings hanged on ceiling, many ancient communication tools, and traditional tools for farming in korea, and many more.
Gimhae (金海市), also known as Kim-hae, is a city in South Gyeongsang (慶尙南道) province, South Korea. Gimhae is known to local as “The Paris of Gyeongsangmando”. it is the seat of the large Gimhae-Kim clan.
*Su-ro Royal tomb*
The last sightseeing was to the King suro’s tomb located in Gim-hae as well. King Kim Suro founded Garakguk (A.D 42) as ruler of Gaya and helped to promote the magnificent Gaya culture. The Gaya period saw the cultivation of rice and production of iron, thereby playing a leading part in helping to form an ancient civilization in Korea.
King Suro’s tomb stands as a state symbol of the Gaya culture. King Suro was also the family founder of the Gimhae Kim and Heo families. According to legend, King Suro was the first person to hatch from eggs. Nearby Gujibong is where golden eggs supposedly came down from the sky, from which the King emerged. Thus his name was Suro.
Queen Inhuh was a princess of the Ayuta state in India. Right before her death, she ordered two of her nine sons to follow her family name of Hea, which formed the origin of the Gimhae Heo family. This is why men and women having Gimhae Kim or Heo as their family name cannot get married.
The closing ceremony started at 18 00 in AMORIS hall. Started with two performances before the award giving.
