There was an extraordinary stone monument at the center of the ground in front of Geukrakbojeon hall which was constructed for Amitabha Buddha.
That was a rectangular shape stone, and the lotusflower was carven on the surface of the stone.
I saw this kind of stone first time which was located at the centre of the ground.
Of course, there were several cases that kinds of stones were placed near the pagoda or the stone Buddha statues in the case of Gwan Chock Sa temple which I posted before.
But the stone carved with lotus flower in front of the main hall was the first time.
It made me think that they might thought the main hall as same as the pagoda.
Actually it feels like that the main temples and the pagodas were closely related each other.
There were several stone structures at the ground of the hall.
The stone holder of the poll in front of Guekrakbojeon was impressive. It looked like to show me its long history.
At the right corner of the ground, the 3 story stone pagoda was placed.
That pagoda seemed to be built between the late Shilla and the early Goryeo kingdom.
This temple looked like to preserve the late Shilla architectural style in my view, the building must’ve been rebuilt several times though.
