    Introduction
    The Donggosa Temple, located on Seungamsan Mountain in Jeollabuk-do, Jeonju-si, is a Buddhist temple of the Taego Order. The hike up to the Donggosa Temple is a refreshing climb on Seungamsan Mountain, and the temple provides a stunning panoramic view of downtown Jeonju. The temple buildings were constructed one after another along the mountain ridge, and stand in a row on either side of Daeungjeon (the main hall).

    The Donggosa Temple is modest and tastefully decorated with portraits of deceased great Buddhist monks and wooden Buddhist murals. The hiking trail to the right of the Donggosa Temple leads to the Chimyeongjasan Martyrs Ground, which is the graveyard of persecuted Catholics from the late Joseon Dynasty.
