The first reason why I came by this temple was looking around Gakwhang-jeon hall which was said the one of 3 great buddhist temple in Korea. The standard to decide those 3 great Buddhist hall was uncertain, but in my experience, the size, the beauty and the history seemed important in the criterion.
The hall, Gakwhang-jeon, was said to be built by the King in Choson dynasty. More clearly speaking, this hall was rebuild after the Japanese Invasion 1592-1597. Actually this hall was built in Shilla dynasty more than 1200 years ago. After the war, the King donated the money to rebuild this hall.
The Gakwhang-jeon hall was so beautiful, so I took several photos from different angles.
I wish you enjoy the beauty of Gakwhang-jeon.
The foundation and the corner stones indicated that this hall was built in Shilla dynasty at first.
The inside scenes were as below
The other two great halls were Daewung-jeon in Beopju-sa temple and Geuklak-jeon in Murang-sa temple.
