  • Information
    Introduction
    Yongmunsa Temple is located about 9 kilometers northeast from Yongmun Station on the Jungang line. It was built during the Silla Kingdom and reconstructed during the reign of King Sejong of the Joseon dynasty. It was badly damaged during the Korean War, but was restored and now consists of three buildings, the main hall, Daeungjeon Hall, and the bell tower. Its courtyard contains the largest ginkgo tree in Asia, which is 1,100 years old, measures 60 meters in height and 14 meters in circumference and is designated and protected as a Natural Monument. Legend says the great Buddhist Monk Uisang, who lived during the Silla Kingdom, stuck his staff in the earth, and the tree grew out of the simple staff.
