Introduction
The East Sea, touching one side of the Korean peninsula, is fabulous. It can be seen in South Korea from its coastline stretching from the Reunification Observatory at Goseong, Kangwon-do to Busan.
This coastline has many wonderful sites worth visiting, including Kangrung Gyeongpodae, Jeongdongjin Station, which became a famous romantic station thanks to a TV drama 'Sandglass,' Chuam in Samcheok and Gangu Port. Nevertheless, Homigot might be the best place to visit the east coastline.

It belongs to Daebo-ri, Daebo-myon, Nam-gu, Pohang city, Kyoungsanbuk-do. On the map of the Korean peninsula, which looks like a tiger, this village is in the projecting part of the east coast, that is, in the tail of the tiger. The name of the bay in this village is called Youngilman. The name of the region is Homigot.
Though it is in the east, people can see the sun setting over water towards the west in this region. The view of the east sea looks beautiful from this village. The sea spreads endlessly. In addition, the coastal road passing by this village is fantastic. National road No. 912, running by the sea from Guryongpo to the Pohang airport through Homigot, is perfect for a scenic drive.

For a wonderful drive, it is recommended to start from Gampo in Kyoungju. Coming from Bomundanji in Kyoungju, pass by Churyeong and then run to Yangnam. From the Tomb of King Munmu, take national road No. 31 and keep driving to Guryongpo. Get onto local road No. 912 and drive to Homigot. The coastal road to this village has magnificent views unrivaled by any other coastlines.
The three sides of the Homigot region (at the tail of the tiger) are surrounded by sea. It is at the tip of Youngilman (38km from Pohang). Its front sea is the place of migratory fishes thanks to the mingling of cold and warm currents. Nets are placed in places to catch fishes, and the sea has a rich marine life (i.e. squid, makerel pikes, makerels, seaweeds, brown seaweeds, abalones and sea urchins). Because the region is a strategic point, it has important military facilities. Thanks to the strong sea wind, wind power generators were erected in 2001, which was the first erection on land in Kyoungsangbuk-do. Since then, their power generation has been tested.

  The region also has the largest lighthouse in Korea, which was built in 1903, and the first lighthouse museum, which was constructed in 1985 and will be open again in the middle of 2002 (currently, it is closed). Because the sun rises earliest here all the year round in Korea, the region receives tourists from all parts of the nation. The region also has a clean coast and beautiful geographical features, so the entire region of Homigot (Daebo-myon) makes a natural park. It will soon be developed into a national tourist resort. The number of tourists visiting to see the sun rise is on the rise every year.


History
When administrative districts were abolished or merged in 1914, Daechon and Bocheon were merged into Daebo-ri. On October 4, 1976, the Daebo branch of the Guryongpo-up office at Guman-ri was moved to Daebo-3-ri (#859-1). The branch was again moved in April 1988 to a new building at Guman-1-ri.
In 1973, Daecheonji (a large reservoir) was constructed in Hannae (Daecheon), and the area was turned into rice paddies with stable irrigation. Below the pond, stands a monument in tribute to the Ha Family. In the south, among a forest of pine trees, sits Beondigi (pupa) Village, the name being derived from the Beondigi Forest (forest of pine trees).
Bocheon-ri consists of 2 villages which are in the south of Bocheon (creek). The village to the north of Bocheon was called Yeongilbeolnae, while the one to the south was called Janggibeolnae.
Now the two villages are linked by commercial and residential sites. Homigot has Jinjuhassi Semanjeong Hyomoon (a gate in praise of filial Semanjeong, who was from the Jinju Ha family), which was built in 1954, and Jinjuin Hasangcheon Hyogak (a pavilion in praise of the filial son Sang-cheon Ha, who was from Jinju) close to the gate of filial piety.

At the entrance to the lighthouse museum, a famous site in Homigot, stands Homidung Yuraebi (a monument), facing Homidung in the west. The inscriptions tells that Daebo had such beautiful scenery that Yukdang Nam-seon Choi recorded the region as one of 10 best natural beauties in Korea in the book 'Chosunsangsikjiri' (a book about the geography of Korea) and 'Gyeokam Namsagosansubirok' (a book about the secrets of the mountains and rivers written by Geokam, who was a scholar of geomancy during the reign of King Myoungjong of the Chosun Dynasty) called the region Homidung (tiger's tail) because it looked like the tail of a tiger.

Introduction
According to Samguk Yusa, Bulguksa Temple was built on the 10th year (751) of the reign of King Gyeongdeok.
King Gyeongdeok’s era, when Silla stabilized after the unification of the Three Kingdoms and when cultural capabilities were high, was the golden year of Silla culture; and at that time, Silla people were very proud that Silla was the Buddha’s land.
The strong devotion of the Silla people was realized with the development of science and technology, excellent building techniques, and artistic sensibility.  Bulguksa Temple was created with such devotion.  That is why the real power of Bulguksa Temple does not come merely from its beautiful scenery, quiet temple mood, and superior construction techniques. Let us reflect on the name Bulguk (Buddha’s land) by embracing the spirits of the Silla people a thousand years ago. The precinct area is divided into the following three areas: Dae Ung Jeon, Geuk Rak Jeon, and Bi Ro Jeon, where three Buddhas are enshrined.

Each area is composed of a staircase and a door at the entrance, a central building, and a corridor that surrounds them. The Dae Ung Jeon area indicates the world of suffering of the Sakyamuni Buddha, the Geuk Rak Jeon area represents the Land of Happiness of the Amitabul, and the
Bi Ro Jeon area corresponds to the lotus-flowered world of Birojanabul. Supposing these three areas located on the stones are the world of Buddha, the area under these stones is the world of human beings.

Cheongun Baegun Bridge and Yeonhwa Chilbo Bridge connect these two worlds. Carefully observing the construction techniques of the stones and the bridges, anyone can easily notice that the skills of the Silla people who used the stones were not common. Seokgatap Tower and Dabotap Tower, which face each other in the yard of the Dae Ung Jeon area, are the highlights of the Bulguksa constructions.
The graceful-looking Seokgatap Tower is definitely different from the luxurious Dabotap Tower, but it shows the completion of beauty through symmetry and balance, as well as diversification and harmony, in keeping with the peripheral buildings.
