WONTONG BOJEON

The Beopjusa Wontong Bojeon was first constructed by Eoisin Josa 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). This is a beautiful and splendid one-story building with rectangular shape and four-corner roof. It contains the 2.8m high gold-color wooden Gwaneum Bodhisattva. The Gwaneum Bodhisattva wears the flower crown on his head, and looks benevolent.
