Hyeguksa, Mungyeongsaejae Filming Site

  • Hyeguksa: Hyeguksa was built in the middle of Juheulsan by Chaejing Bojoguksa in the eighth year of the reign of King Munseong during the Silla dynasty. At that time the temple was called Beopheungsa but when King Gongmin stayed here to avoid the Hongeonjeok riots at the end of Goryeo, it was renamed Hyeguksa. It had been a small temple. Not much is known about it after that. However, master monks Songjang and Jiseong remodeled the temple in the tenth year of the reign of King Gojong. In 1977 Geumgangmun, Daeungjeon, and Mandeokjeon were built, and in 1989 Seongcheondaesa finished the general remodeling and conducted a Buddhist ceremony of blessing. Today the temple is for secular Buddhism followers of Mungyeong and Jeomcheon.
