Daegu Alleys & Gourmet Tour
• The Road of Kim Kwang-suk
Past the infinite wedding shops and through the neighborly streets of the old and new, you will begin to faintly hear music coming from a seemingly tucked away alley. Follow the music, and you will come across the Road of Kim Kwang-suk, or 김광석길. Not located far from bustling downtown and next to the Bangcheon Marketplace, Kim Kwang-suk Road is a lengthy alleyway that displays several murals, paintings, and other small art works upon its walls, dedicated to the late folk song singer, Kim Kwang-suk. As you walk and observe each art work, his legendary music is streamed through speakers that are fixed along the continuous wall, creating a well fitted aesthetic ambience. The area is quite isolated, taking you away from the busy and hectic city life, and into a surrealistic wonderland of art where time seems to be still for moment.

Otgol is the clan village of the Gyeongju Choi family, who settled with the arrival of Choi Dong-jip, a scholar in the mid-Joseon era who came and established himself in the area.

The original name of the temple was Yugasa, but Simjiwangsa rebuilt the temple under King HeungDeok (reign 826~836) and named it Donghwa Temple.
