San #18-7, Chuseong-ri, Macheon-myeon, Hamyang-gun
This is a temple harmonizing with natural rocks, located in about 600m from Byeoksongsa (Temple) which was rebuilt by Byeoksong Jiamdaesa, successor of Korean Buddhism’ Zen, continuing to this day. Priest Woneung, rebuilt Byeoksongsa (Temple) ruined by Korean War, set up here as a sanctuary with impressively geographical features of Jirisan Mountain namely, carving numberless Buddha statues in graceful nature and on natural rocks. And then he completed a sculpture-sanctuary drawn Geungnak, a symbol of Buddha’ Utopia, taking a 10-year period. So here is presenting the very splendid and magnificent sight. Here is Daebangkwangmun which can go into Buddha’ true land at the entrance of temple. Through Sacheonwangsang engraved on the rock, once entering Doryang, there is a grotto sanctuary showing Geungnak world with Amitayeorae as main Buddha statue. Above Doryang is Kwangmyeongundae, constituting Buddha statues without number. And then as a cultivating place for priests is Sajagul. All of these are not only showing the acme of Buddhism art by caving and sculpturing in natural rocks, but also focusing on the interest of the academic world about architectural features.
