The "Rock of the Falling Flowers" is located at the top of the summit overlooking the Baengma River. You can get a nice view from the Baekhwajeong pavilion. According to old legend, 3,000 women from the Baekje royal court jumped to their deaths into the river below. It was said that they chose an honorary death rather than dying at the hands of the enemy (the Shilla-Tang alliance).

About 2km (1 1/4 miles) to the east is another site of Baekje graves at Neunganggol. Excavated from 1995 to 1996, these tombs with their tunnel-like stone rooms helped solve some of the mysteries of Baekje burials. Although there isn't much to see here, there are single graves, double tombs, and a grave for children.
