Jeondeungsa Temple  At each corner of the roof of the Main Hall, you’ll find statues of a (mostly) naked woman like this. Legend has it the carpenter who built the structure did this to enact revenge on a local barmaid with whom he’d fallen in love. The carpenter made the mistake of giving the woman all his money, and the woman repaid his affection by taking his money and running off with another man. Now she gets to hold up the temple roof for all eternity.
