Templestay Introduction


Bulguksa Bulguksa Temple and Seokguram Grotto

The construction of this temple was begun by Prime Minister Kim Dae-seong in751, The temple served as a center of Silla Buddhism and of prayer for the protection of the country from foreign invasion. The entire temple was burnt down by Japanese invaders in 1593, the 26th year of Joseon King Seonjo, because the temple was used as a base of the volunteer military. Though the main hall and a few other principal buldings were rebuilt, it was not until 1963-1973 that it was completely restored after through reserch, investigation and excavations of the ancient temple site.
Important cultural properties from the Unified Silla period located on the premises include the Anyangmun gate, the seated gilt bronze Amitabha stature enshrined in the Geuknajeon hall, and the seated gilt bronze Vaircana statue in the Birojeon. All these works and other Buddhist relics attest to the flowering of Buddhist art and Culture Silla. In1995, along with Seokguram Grotto, Bulguksa temple were designated as the world cultural heritage by the UNESCO
