CHEONGNYANGSA - KOREA
Cheongnyangsa is located at the foot of Yeonhwabong Peak, which is in Mt. Cheongnyangsan Provincial Park. The temple was established by the Great Buddhist Monk Won-Hyo, on King Munmu’s (661-681) 3rd year of reign. Cheongnyangsa is currently a very small temple, but it is believed to have been a very large temple once. Because of political measures of the Joseon Period (1392-1910) to abolish all temples in the country, only the Cheongnyangsa Yuribojeon and Eungjinjeon are left. There is a calligraphy tablet preserved in the sanctuary, which was written by King Gongmin ( 1351-1374).
