|Eunhaesa Temple (은해사)|
Eunhaesa Temple, located on Palgongsan mountain in Youngcheon city, Gyeongsangbuk-do province, is one of two major temples on the mountain along with Donghwasa Temple.
It was built by monk Hyecheol in the first year of King Heondeok’s reign during the Silla Dynasty (AD 809), but was moved to the current site in the Joseon Dynasty in 1546 (the first year of King Myeongjong). At the time, it was named Eunhaesa temple and King Injong of the Joseon Dynasty was commemorated with a lecture hall and monument built where his umbilical cord was buried.
The temple houses the main shrine, Bohwaru pavilion, Seolseondan Hall, Shimgeondang Hall, eight small hermitages, as well as Baegeungam Temple, Jungangam Temple, and a professional Buddhist education institution: ‘Eunhaesa Buddhist University.’ Eunhaesa Temple is home to national treasure No. 14, Geojoamyongsanjeon hall, and treasure number 790, Baekheungamgeukrakjeon Hall. It also contains treasure No. 486, the Sunidan Buddha Platform; treasure No. 514, the Wunbuamcheongdongbosal Seated Buddha Statue; and treasure No. 1270, the Eunhaesa Temple Gwaebultaeng hanging Buddha picture.
