Templestay Introduction


DonghwasaAccording to the historical records of Donghwasa, the founder, Master Geukdal, Originally named this place Yugasa Temple in the 15th year of King Soji's reign(479-500) of the shilla Kingdom. It came to be renamed Donghwasa, which refers to 'Dong' meaning 'Paulownia tree' and 'Hwa' meaning 'flower'. It was given this name because the flowers of Paulownia tree were auspiciously blooming in winter, during the reconstruction of the temple. Its new name was given by Great Master Simji in 832, in the 7th year of King Heungdeok' reign(826-836)

Donghwasa is located in a place that looks like Bonghwang, the phoenix, brooding on her egg. It is very good place for make-a-wish, practice like developing good healthy habits.
