  • Information
    Introduction
    Magoksa Temple was founded by Monk Jajangyulsa in 640, a representative temple of Chungcheongnam-do. Magoksa Temple is surrounded by a mountain and a stream curving in a yin-yang shape. Perhaps because of such a shape, this temple was never damaged by any major wars during the Joseon period (1392-1910). It is most beautiful during the spring time, when the cherry blossoms, sansuyu, and magnolias fill the whole area.
    Two eye-catching sights at Magoksa Temple are the Five-story Stone Pagoda and the Chinese juniper trees scholar Kim Gu (Korean politician and freedom activist) is said to have planted. The top of the Five-story Stone Pagoda is decorated with bronze. This style was influenced by the Lama Buddhist sect of Tibet, and there are said to be only three such structures left in the world.
