Gaesimsa Temple



 Gaesimsa Temple is located deep in the dense forest of Mt. Sang- wangsan (307 m) and 6 km from Haemi-up. This is one of the four greatest temples in Chungchongnamdo and is noted for the cherry blossoms in the spring.  Gaesimsa Temple's Taeungjon Hall (main building) has a uniquely combined style of Tap'ojip (construction method) and Chushimp'ojip with 3 Kan* in front and 3 Kans on its sides.
 The construction of this temple, designated as Treasure No. 143, was completed in 1484. * A Kan is a traditional unit of measuring the space between two columns.
