The pride of Natsil Village, the best place in the region of Cheongdo-gun

There are two well-known portraits of the late scholar Goun Choe Chi-won one in Jirisan Ssanggyesa Temple, and the other in Mt. Gayasan Haeinsa Temple. This particular portrait, which now rests in Haknamseowon Gyedongsa Shrine, was transferred from Haeinsa Temple in fear of Japanese's looting, after Choe’s family consulted with the head priest of a temple. This portrait has great historical vallue.
