Dopiansa Temple

Dopiansa Temple was built in 865, the 5th year of the reign of King Gyeongmun of the Unified Silla period. When the Great Monk Doseon-guksa arrived at this place with his one thousand disciples, he was enchanted by the beautiful surroundings. He later built a temple here and named it "Dopiansa Temple". (Pian or Faramita means an "eternal place to rest"). In this temple are the iron-made Vairocana Buddha (National Treasure No. 63) and the 4.1 meter-high, three-story stone pagoda (Treasure No.223)
