  • Information
    Seonggwansa Temple is located in the rural village of Geumdeok-ri, Janggye-myeon, Jangsu-gun in Jeollabuk-do province, yet the size of this temple is quite big with around ten buildings. It is said that the temple was established during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392), but the history of the temple is not very clear as there are no remains or written documents of the temple from the Goryeo period that remain today.

    The name of the temple was changed to Geumdeoksa in 1943, but it recovered its original name of Seonggwangsa in 1994. Seonggwansa means that its disciplines are to practice Buddhist teachings and spread the teachings of Buddha. The present temple site includes Daeungjeon (main hall), Seolbeopjeon (preaching hall), Samseonggak Pavilion, Junghwadang, Daegakseonwon, Iljumun Gate, Jonggak Belfry, and a nine-story pagoda.
