    Introduction
    Deokjusa Temple is a branch temple of Beopjusa, the head temple of the 5th district of the Jogye Order. The temple is believed to have been established by Princess Deokju, the last princess of the Silla Kingdom, in 586 AD (9th year of King Jinpyeong of Silla).

    According to legend, Princess Deokju stayed at the site with Prince Maui and built the temple, naming it “Deokjusa” after herself. The temple once stood in front of the Deokjusa Maaebul Rock-carved Buddha (Treasure No. 406), but was burned down during the Korean War.

    The present temple building stands about 1.7 kilometers from the original temple site and is the result of reconstruction efforts conducted in the 1970s.
