Bupjusa in Songnisan was built in the 14th
era(533 A.D.) of the reign
of King Chinhung of Shilla Kingdom
which was 1,400 years ago from now and which was the 24th year after
Buddhism had been introduced in this country.
Before that time, Priest Uishin came here from India with a load
of Buddhist scripts and thought that this place was most suitable
to build a large temple for the spread of the truth of Buddhism,
seeing the magnificent geographic feature of the mountain and the
surrounding steep cliffs.
In view of this, he built a large temple and denominated it as "Bupjusa"
In the 12th era (776 A.D.) of the reign of King Hyegong of Shilla
Kingdom, Priest Chinp'yo renovated it. After that, King Sejo
of the Choson Kingdom visited here and completely repaired all temples
in this mountain and bestowed a tablet together with royal ink stone.
