This ancient Buddhist temple has come close to demise several times in its long history. Constructed in 794 by the high-ranking monk Yeon-hoe, it later fell into disrepair during the Joseon Dynasty, which tried to repress Buddhism in Korea. It was reconstructed in 1498, and the next century, became the main temple of the Korean Zen sect of Buddhism from 1551 through 1936. In 1939, a fire destroyed most of the buildings, and other buildings were demolished during the Korean War; one of the buildings that survived holds the woodblock carvings of the Floweer Garland Sutra.
