Where the trace of Manhae Han Yong-Un remains, Baekdamsa Temple sitting inside the deep valleys of inner Seolak



Located on Naeseolak, Baekdamsa Temple was built by Ja Jang (590-658) during the reign of Queen Jin-Deok (647-654), 28th king of the Silla Kingdom. In the beginning, a temple called Hangyesa was built in Hangye-ri which was in the vicinity of Jangsudae. This temple was completely demolished by several fire accidents including one in the year 690, during the reign of King Sinmun. It changed its location to several other sites and was renamed Youngchuisa Temple, Simsa Temple, Baekdamsa Temple and Simwonsa Temple.



A stone bridge called Susimgyo is built across Baekdam Valley to the front of Baekdamsa Temple. A wooden Amityus Buddha Statue, designated as National Treasure No.1182, is preserved here at Baekdamsa Temple. This Buddhist statue was made in 1748 during the reign of Yeongjo (reign 1724-1776) and is known as the most outstanding statue in the early 18th century. Currently remaining structures include Geukrakbojeon, Sanryeonggak, Hwaeomsil, Beophwasil, Jeongmun and Yosachae. In the courtyard, there is a three-story stone temple remaining to this date. As for temples, Bongjeongam, Oseam and Wonmyeongam still remain today.
Baekdamsa Temple was made famous by Manhae Han Yong-Un, a strong activist for national independence and poet. Today, Baekdamsa Temple has the Manhae Monument Hall, built to remember the spirit of Manhae Han Yong-Un.
