Introduction
Dongguksa Temple was built by Japanese monk Seoneungbulgwan in 1909. The temple was run by Japanese monks for 36 years during the Japanese occupation, reverting to Korean jurisdiction when Korea was liberated from under Japanese rule on August 15, 1945. The historical temple is the only surviving Japanese-style temple in the nation.

The temple is characterized by its two main buildings (Daeungjeon and Yosachae, which are connected by a corridor) and the temple’s relative lack of decoration, which stands as a sharp contrast to the brilliantly-colored Korean temples. Dongguksa Temple was officially designated Cultural Asset No. 64 in July 2003 and is now a branch temple of Seonunsa Temple in Gochang, the 24th district of the Korean Buddhist Jogye Order.
