Hand of harmony, Pohang, South Korea

  

Home to POSCO, one of the world's largest steel companies, Pohang is also credited with having a number of other largely known and recognized places such as Jukdo Market," the country's largest traditional seafood market, the historic and picturesque Oeosa Temple, the breathtaking landscape surrounding Bogyeongsa Temple, and the ever popular Bukbu Beach that stretches more than 1700 meters along the coast of the East Sea.

Each of these locations are a must see for the individual traveler, as well as those units or organizations looking to do something that will further enhance their cultural experience while in the Land of the Morning Calm. However, there's more to this city of more than 500,000 people that is worth mentioning, and that's Homigot Beach where the "Hand of Harmony," an immense bronze structure of a hand rising up from the sea has become a popular place for natives and tourists alike.
