|Found at Seokgatap in Bulguksa Temple, Mugujeonggwang Daedaranigyeong (Pure Light Dharani Sutra) is a yellowish roll of paper that has remained in good condition, despite having been made over 700 years ago. This yellowish paper is hanji (traditional Korean paper) which has the characteristic of being strong and durable, reflecting Korea’s strong and pure spirit. It is also referred to as ‘Baekji’, meaning the paper was processed 100 times before finally being completed
The main theme of Wonju Hanji Festival is “Hanji - embracing our wisdom and beauty as a wonderful cultural heritage” and the festival offers varied programs related to hanji, such as the history and making process, various uses, hanji arts and more.
