    Introduction
    Unlike Goguryeo and Silla, Baekje's origin of Buddhism and how it spread had remained a mystery other than the story of how Indian monk Mirananta came to Yeonggwang and founded Bulgapsa Temple. In 1998, records were found stating that Monk Mirananta first set foot in Jwaudu Village in Beopseong-myeon, Yeonggwang in AD 384 after passing through Dongjin in China. Subsequently, the site has turned into an attraction in honor of the monk and the spread of Buddhism.
