  • Information
    Introduction
    Gaeamsa Temple is a small, quiet temple built in 634 during the Baekje dynasty. The origin of the name "Gaeam" goes back to 282 BC, when King Mun from the Byeonhan confederacy took refuge here during the revolt of the Jinhan and Mahan confederacies. Under King Mun's command, temples for the new fortress were built on east and west sides of the valley; the western temple was called Gaeam. In 676, the temple was expanded and in 1276, thirty more buildings were raised, expanding it to a grand temple.
