DAEOONG BOJEON

The Beopjusa Daeoong Bojeon was constructed in the 14th year of king Jinheung (553) of the Silla dynasty, and rebuilt by Jinpyo Yulsa in the 12th year of king Haegong (776). During the Japanese Invasions (1592-8) of the Joseon dynasty, it was burnt down by Japanese soldiers, and rebuilt by Byeokam Daesa in the 2nd year of king Injo (1624).

It is a big structure with the floor space being 170 pyeong, and the height 19m. It is considered as one of three beautiful Buddhist buildings of Korea along with Geongnakjeon of the Mooryangsa temple, and Gakhwangjeon of the Hwaeomsa temple. And, the construction technique applied to this building is found also in Mireukjeon of the Geumsansa.

There are three Buddhas, Bupsin, Bosin, and Hwashi in its hall. Three-buddha theory appeared as the Mahayanist Buddhism developed in history.
