  • It is said that the Imjin War (Japan's Sixteenth-Century Invasion of Korea) had burnt the whole Jangansa Temple, which was remodeled in the 8th year of the King Injo (1631) then rebuilt by the great priest Tae Ur in the 16th year of Injo, and again in the 5th year of the King Hyojong, Wonjong, Hangneung. Chungmuk restored Daeungjeon, which is city-designated monument No. 37.

  • Compared to other Buddhist temples rooted deep in mountains, Haedong Yonggung Templ is located on the coast of the East Sea with dark blue sea water rolling below the foot of the temple as the name indicates. Therefore, it may be right to call it a water temple. It is a representative spot of Gijang that tourists, whether in groups or not, visit all year round.
