Jogyesa Temple Jogyesa Temple

Jogyesa Temple

First established in 1395 in the early days of the Joseon Dynasty, Jogyesa Temple is the chief temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. The current temple was founded in 1910 and was originally named 'Hwanggaksa,' but it was changed to 'Taegosa' when the country was under Japanese rule. Finally, it was given the name Jogyesa Temple in 1954. The temple offers visitors many opportunities to learn about Buddhism; there are temple stay programs that allow those from foreign countries to get a glimpse of the temple's inner workings. In 1998, the temple gained international notoriety when monks who were involved in a protest against the Jogye Order occupied Jogyesa. After 40 days, riot police removed the protesters. Jogyesa is a popular destination for its Daeungjeon (Main Dharma Hall), which is the largest temple building in Seoul.
