  • Information
    Introduction
    Bongjeongsa Temple is believed to have been built in 672 by the Great Buddist Monk Ui-Sang. However, other documents seem to state that Neungin Daedeuk, a disciple of Monk Ui-Sang, established the temple. During the Korean War, many documents related to the temple were destroyed, so much of the history has been lost. In 1972, while reconstruction work was being done on Geuknakjeon Hall, records were discovered stating the hall was repaired in 1363. This discovery gave concrete evidence that Geuknakjeon Hall is the oldest wooden building in the nation.
