Conveniently located near Insa-dong, this temple was built in 1395 during the Chosun Dynasty. It plays an important role in the history of Korea as is considered the center for Buddhism in this country. This, perhaps the most important of all the Buddhist monuments in the land, stands a magnificent 12 meters high and has a width of 1.67 meters. An old evergreen tree that stands in the gardens is often referred to as Korea's ninth national monument.
