Dongguksa Temple was built in 1909 and is the only Japanese style temple left in Korea.
Unlike traditional Korean temples, it doesn’t have fancy traditional multicolored paintwork and there are many windows on the building, which is are typical characteristics of Japanese temples. Made of construction materials from Japan, this temple doesn’t have One Pillar Gate or the statue of four heavenly guardians of Buddhism to acknowledge the main entrance of the temple, and the ridge of the roof is not curved, but rather a straight line.
After the Independence of Korea in 1970, the title of temple was changed to “Dongguksa Temple,” meaning the temple of Korea to the east of the sea, and Daeungjeon Hall was set as Registered Cultural Property No. 64 in 2003. Besides Daeungjeon Hall, the original features of Yosachae main building, Korea belfry, and other annex buildings are being maintained fairly well.
