So many candles were lit by the prayers beside the Saint Maria. The Jeoldu Martyr's Shrine was originated by the intense persecution on 1866. The martyrs died at the place for the belief. The church building was constructed on 1967. 103 Saints were canonized on 1984. Now many descendent believers go on a pilgrimage to remember the saints' martyrdom. . It became a season of entrance exam for university. Many of the flaming candles might be for the examinees, I guessed.
