    Introduction
    Located in Mount Dobisan in Seosan, Chungcheongnam-do, Buseoksa Temple was built in the Silla Era. The temple, which is also known as Seosan Buseoksa, is not as well known as Yeongju Buseoksa Temple in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province because of its size and lack of extensive historical documentation. The temple was built by the Great Monk Uisang in 677, the 17th year of King Munmu of Silla, and was later rebuilt by Great Monk Muhak during the Joseon Dynasty.

    The beautiful Geumdonggwaneumbosaljwasang, or seated gilt-bronze Buddha statue, which was housed in the Buseoksa Temple in 1330, is now located in a temple on Tsushima Island in Japan. The only remaining buildings of Buseoksa are the large Geungnakjeon Hall, Mongnyongjang (the monks' living quarters), Simgeomdang, and Anyangnu. Walking up from the main hall, visitors will find the Sansingak building, and a stone pagoda close to the entrance of the Mount Dobisan hiking trail. From the summit of Mount Dobisan, one can get an amazing view of the Seohae Sea beyond Ganwoldo and Anmyeondo islands, as well as Mount Gayasan. For this reason, the temple draws a large crowd of visitors despite its relatively small size.
