    Introduction
    Naesosa Temple was built by Buddhist Monk Hye-Gu in 633 during the Baekje dynasty and was rebuilt by Monk Cheong-Min in 1633 during the Joseon dynasty. The Daeungbojeon Hall was built at this time. In 1986, the temple area was designated as a culturally protected area.

    On both sides of the main gate are large fir trees, which also line the path into the temple. Upon reaching the temple itself, the first thing you’ll notice is the 1000-year-old Dangsan tree. Long ago, people used the base of the tree as a site of prayer.

    Housed in Beomjonggak is a bronze bell that can be found in many Buddhist Temples. This particular bell was made during the Goryeo Era and is engraved with three images of Buddha, called Samjonsang. The center building of the temple, called Daeungbojeon is also an artistic masterpiece, decorated with splendid colors and designs. The flower Salmun doors featuring lotus and Chrysanthemum flowers add another element of traditional beauty to the building.

    Of all the temple treasures, Haewuso (meaning a place that gets rid of worrries) is not to be missed. True to its name, you’ll almost find yourself forgetting all your worries as you listen to the soft swaying of the surrounding bamboo grove.
