Templestay Introduction

GeumsansaGeumsansa: A Templestay program you’ll never forget.

The Geumsansa temple is quietly perched in the western foothills of Moaksan. Like the mountain Gyeryongsan, Moaksan (the so-called Mother Mountain) is the cradle of many different indigenous religions. The mountain’s shape looks like a mother cradling her baby, thus Moaksan embraces Geumsansa.

During the Baekjae reign of King Beop (599 C.E.), the temple was built to pray for the king’s prosperity and good fortune. Later during the reign of Shilla King Hyegong (766 C.E.), the Precepts Master Ven. Jinpyo (718-752 C.E.) expanded the temple and established it as the Head Temple for the worship of Maitreya. Maitreya, regarded as the future Buddha. A compassionate Buddha who is always with his faithful followers.

When you step in Geumsansa, you would see valuable relics and cultural assets. The most eye-catching among all, undoubtedly is the three storey Mireukjeon (Maitreya Hall), the one and only in Korea. From the outside, it seems like a three storey building, but inside is completely open all the way up to the high ceiling. Inside this enormous hall, is a triad of statues. It features, Maitreya in the middle (with a height of 11.82 m) and two Bodhisattvas on both sides with a height of 8.79 m each.
