Introduction
Bongjeongsa Temple was built in the 12th year of King Munmu (reign from 661~681) of the Silla Kingdom as, according to the legend, the Great Buddist Monk Ui-Sang (625~702) launched from Buseoksa Temple landed on this spot. Documents from Geuknakjeon state that Neungin Daedeuk, a disciple of Monk Ui-Sang, had established the temple and it has been rebuilt several times during the Joseon Dynasty (1392~1910).

Bongjeongsa Temple is the largest temple in Andong, and possesses the oldest Korea wooden building Geuknakjeon. Past the Ilju Gate and the forest path is the Bongjeongsa Temple. Bongjeongsa Temple has a unique elegant atmosphere. The old trees and hermitages nearby are also worth the look. There are many towers inside such as the Daeungjeon (National Treasure No.55), Geuknakjeon (National Treasure No.15) and many others. There are also important buildings such as the 3-story Stone Pagoda, the representative pagoda of the Goryeo Dynasty (918~1392). Geuknakjeon from the Goryeo Dynasty, and Daeungjeon from the Joseon Dynasty, stand next to each other. It will be interesting to compare the two types of architecture. Inside both buildings there is a tree with the complete collection of Buddhist Sutras, Laws and Treatises and others.
