Intro :
Pagyesa Temple is thought to have been established in 804 by Royal Preceptor Simjiwangsa of the Silla Kingdom (57B.C. to A.D.935). It was then reconstructed by the Buddhist priest, Gyegwanbeopsa, in 1605, and again rebuilt by the Buddhist Monk, Hyeoneungjosa, in 1695. King Yeongjo of the Joseon Dynasty had a special relationship with Pagyesa Temple. It is said that King Yeongjo was born thanks to a hundred-day prayer by a Buddhist teacher who then stayed in the Pagyesa Temple. Actually, King Yeongjo's royal robe was found in Wontongjeon, where a Wooden Gwaneum Bodhisattva (Treasure No. 992) is kept. Situated on the premises of the temple are Wontongjeon, Jindongru, Seolseondang, and Jeokmukdang in a square arrangement, with the main worship hall Wontongjeon in the center.
