  • Information
    Introduction
    Located on the southern part of Chiseosan Mountain, Tongdosa Temple is famous for not having any Buddhist statues in the temple. This is because the real sarira (sacred relics) of the Buddha are preserved here. The temple's name "tongdo" means "passage," and was named to symbolize the temple as the passage to enlightenment. The "passage" also refers to the Geumgang Stairs, as one who wishes to be a monk must climb these steps. Tongdosa Temple was built during the Silla dynasty under Queen Seondeok's reign (646) after Monk Ja-jang brought the sarira of Buddha from Tang Empire. The temple consists of several halls and buildings, including Daeungjeon Hall, Daegwangmyeongjeon Hall, and Yeongsanjeon Hall, and also has several national treasures.
