Daejeonsa Temple in Juwangsan National Park

Daejeonsa TempleJust inside the entrance to the Juwangsan National Park sits the quaint Daejeonsa Temple (대전사) that sits with views of the high cliffs of Giam directly behind.

The temple was built by the Great Monk Uisang in the 12th year of Shilla King Munmu in 672AD and was named after King Ju’s son. The temple was destroyed during the Imjin War against Japanese invaders and was later rebuilt in 1672, the 13th year of King Hyeonjongs reign. Within the temple are multiple national treasures including a portrait of the Great Buddhist Monk Sa-Myeong. The temple offers a pleasant start to a hike up into the surrounding mountain trials that offer up spectacular views of forest, rivers, waterfalls and more.
