Intro :
Wontongjeon Hall is the main hall in Pagyesa Temple, also called Gwaneumjeon. This hall was reconstructed in 1605 by Monk Gyegwanbeopsa after the original building was destroyed by fire during the Japanese Invasion of 1592. The present hall was reconstructed by Monk Hyeoneungjosa in 1695. It is a three by three kan structure (kan is a traditional unit of measure referring to the space between the columns) with a gabled roof and round pillars supported by undressed natural stones. The eaves are bracketed in a multi-cluster style typical of the late Joseon period (1392-1910) architecture. Wontongjeon was designated as Local Tangible Cultural Properties 7 on July 25, 1984.
