With round Gamsil (alcove) following the slight cutting of the rock, the Gyeongju Namsan Chilburam Maaeseokbul was placed in it.

The statue is sitting comfortably on the lotus pedestals, as if playing a game in the clouds.

What particularly make it look comfortable is because of its unique sitting posture.

Unlike most of the cross-legged stone Buddha statues, this one has its right foot under the pedestal while its left foot is on the pedestal instead of placing it as far as on the knee.

It has an excellent view enough to be called the best pick at Mt. Nam, overlooking Seokguram (Stone Cave Hermitage) and the city center of Gyeongju in the distance.

As the sun rises from Daewangam (Great King Rock), the East sea lights up the colossal statue of Buddha at Seokguram.
