Millennium Juniper: The Garden's Iconic Tree and Pink Muhly Grass
  • The prominent figure at the center of the garden is a juniper tree which is thought to be about one thousand years old. The millennium juniper was originally planted in the town, but a tree collector recognized its value and saved it shortly before the town was due to be evacuated due to the construction of Imha Dam in Andong, Gyeongsangbuk-do. Afterward, the tree collector got in touch with the garden where the juniper was replanted in 2000.

  • In autumn, the pink muhly grass that grows next to the juniper turns the garden pink, creating a beautiful background for a romantic photo. To find another great photo spot, simply follow the narrow path that runs from the juniper to the pink muhly grass garden. There, visitors can take the photo of a lifetime against a backdrop of wide pink grass and the graceful thousand-year--old tree.
