  • Information
    Introduction
    Sinheungsa Temple was first founded under the name Hyangseongsa by Monk Jajang in the 6th year of Queen Jindeok during the Silla dynasty (652). The temple had been damaged several times before it moved to its current site, instructed by monks Yeongseo, Yeonok, and Hyewon who all had envisioned the location in their dreams. The temple was said to have been blessed by god and was renamed Sinheungsa Temple. The temple houses several treasures, including the temple’s 1400-year-temple bell, a bronze steamer bestowed by King Sunjo, and the three-stone pagoda designated as Treasure No. 443 among others.
