  Buyeo was the last capital of the Baekje Kingdom and is rich in legends. There are many remains, too, dating back to the Kingdom's final struggle against the forces of the Shilla Kingdom and its ally Dang China in 660 A.D. A steep hill in Buyo's city center is the site of the Busosanseong Fortress where the Baekje forces made their last stand. Nakhwaam Rock, the "Rock of Falling Flowers," is on top of the fortified hill. from here, a pavilion looks out over the Baengmagang River below. According to legend, 3,000 ladies of the Baekje court leaped to their death in the river far below, committing mass suicide rather than yielding themselves to the conquerors. The Buyeo National Museum reopened on August 6, 1993. The new building has a display space of 2,116㎡, which is three times as large as the old one. It houses 7,867 relics of Baekje Kingdom including Gilt-bronze Seated Maitreya (Nat'l Treasure No. 83), some of which show the cultural essence of Baekje Kingdom and the Cultural development of Bronze Age in Korean Peninsula.
