    Introduction
    Heungryunsa Temple is a missionary center of the Hwaeomsa Temple. Located in Jukdobong Park (downtown Suncheon), the site was previously used as an archery range.

    *History
    Heungryunsa Temple is a branch of Hwaeomsa Temple, which is the 19th local temple of Jogye Order. It is said that Heungryunsa Temple was constructed during the reign of King Seonjo of the Joseon dynasty and that the site was used as a place where naval forces practiced archery during the Imjin War in 1592. At the same time, the temple was the first military base of monk-turned-military officers from Hwaeomsa, Songgwangsa, and Seonamsa Temples.

    The current building was reconstructed in 1986 by Monk Jongwon, who is still the chief abbot of the temple.
