Experience the Homa line and praying that has continued for 2000 years.

It is said that by worshiping at Homa and chanting the mantra, both the body and spirit are purified, and the "Bodhicitta" that is the heart of the Buddha is opened.

The 40-minute trek to the top of the mountain is a paved road, so it's very easy to walk!
