  • Information
    Introduction
    Bongjeongsa Temple is believed to have been built in 672 by the Great Buddist Monk Uisang. However, other documents seem to state that Neungin Daedeuk, a disciple of Monk Uisang, established the temple. During the Korean War, many documents related to the temple were destroyed, so much of the history has been lost. In 1972, while reconstruction work was being done on Geungnakjeon Hall, records were discovered stating the hall was repaired in 1363. This discovery gave concrete evidence that Geungnakjeon Hall is the oldest wooden building in the nation.

    Current Status
    [Geungnakjeon Hall of Bongjeongsa Temple, Andong] National Treasure (Designated on December 20, 1962)
