Family History Tour 2012 (4 of 22): Baekje Sites in Buyeo, Goransa Temple

Down the path from the place a few thousand women are said to have jumped to their deaths over 1,500 years ago, Goransa Temple is a cute (but very small) place next to the weater. It is said that the kings of Baekje would have water brought to them daily from the spring behind this temple (Photo #2 below) and that drinking from it will take three years off of one's age. I drank several times and am feeling much younger.
