Daeungjeon Hall: Daeungjeon Hall and Bell of Unification in harmony with the mountain
  • Daeungjeon Hall of Waujeongsa Temple is characterized by its neat and natural structure, and a simple design unadorned by dancheong (ornamental painting). Visitors are recommended to appreciate the panoramic view of Daeungjeon Hall against the beautiful backdrop of the mountain from the front yard. Visitors are sure to enjoy the fine view of the scenery along with the stone yard, stone pagoda with a prayer box, and staircase.

    Daeungjeon Hall itself contains various Buddhist statues including the five-meter-tall Five Buddhist Statues, which took ten years to produce and contain 60,000kg of brass. The five statues depict Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, Seated Amitabha Buddha, Vairocana Buddha, Seated Sakyamuni Buddha and Mahathamaprapta Bodhisattva.

  • After taking a break in front of Daeungjeon Hall, if you continue further to the right inside the Hall, you will find the Bell of Unification, which is Korea’s largest golden Buddhist temple bell.

    Weighing twelve tons, this Bell of Unification is famous for being struck at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. Furthermore, the world’s largest bronze Pensive Maitreya Bodhisattva (6m-tall) statue, the Stone Seated Bhaisajyaguru Buddha, and other impressive statues are placed around Daeungjeon Hall.
