Attractions in Penis Park?

In the park, one can see dozens of sculpted phalluses stant of an old folk curse.


There is a small folk museum attached showcases penis related art throughout the ages, as well as the history of the small fishing community.

Why this Park named after ‘Penis’?

According to the many legends, a woman was left by her man on a rock in the sea while he worked. Later her man was unable to retrieve her because of a storm and this leads to drowning. After this scenario, the people in the village were not able to catch fish. Well, some said that it is because of dead women.


One day, a fisherman urinated into the water and afterwards, he was able to catch fish, so it was thought that exposing the deceased virgin to male genitalia pleased her. To soothe her spirit further, the local village people made several phallic wooden carvings and held religious ceremonies on her behalf. After a while, the fish slowly returned and the villagers were able to live comfortably again.


The place where the woman died was named Aebawi Rock and the building where the religious ceremony is held twice a year was named Haesindang. The ceremony is still honoured today as a traditional folk event.
