Intro :
A Buddhist Monk Boyanghwasang founded the stone bell-shaped funerary stupa in Yongyeonsa Temple in 914. The altar is surrounded with the stone parapet, which also serves as the boundary of the pagoda. It enshrined Buddha sarira (relics of the Buddhist monks) brought from China to the Silla Kingdom (57B.C. to A.D.935) by the Buddhist Monk Jajangbeopsa when he returned home during the reign of Queen Seondeok (632-647) of Silla. The sarira, initially kept in Tongdosa Temple, was briefly lost during the 1592 Japanese Invasion. Retrieved by Monk Yujeongdaesa, the sarira was to be enshrined here by his pupil, Cheong Jin on the orders of Monk Yujeongdaesa. This stupa was designated as Treasure No. 539.
