Penis Park in South Korea has "growth" in tourist activity because of the Winter Olympics.

Recommended Posts

An extraordinary park in South Korea where everything is shaped like a penis has been inundated with fascinated tourists visiting the nearby Winter Olympics.

The port city of Sinnam is home to Haesindang Park, better known as 'Penis Park' - a monument to fertility born from a legend about a virgin and a fish.

Even the town's quaint red lighthouse is crafted to look phallic.

A normally obscure attraction, the park is drawing curious crowds of visitors from the nearby Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang just an hour away.

The unusual site features penis totem poles, penis benches and penis wind chimes. There is even a penis-shaped cannon, with a warning to tourists that it should not be mounted.

'I've been all over the world and I've never seen anything like this,' said Keith Childs, a Londoner visiting the park with other people working at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

The legend behind the park has been painstakingly chiselled into a row of stone penises. It tells of a virgin who died in a storm as her boyfriend collected seaweed from a rock in a nearby cove.

According to one version of the legend, the village was unable to catch fish after she died until one fisherman urinated into the sea, somehow satisfying the virgin's spirit.

The fishermen later erected a shrine and a phallus on the cliffs of the village in memory of the deceased.

One of the greatest monuments in human history.
