The Silleuksa Temple is immersed in the beauty of nature and is rich in history. Legend has it that the temple was founded by Saint Wonhyo during the reign of King Jinpyeong of the Silla Dynasty. The temple became famous with the death of Naongseonsa in 1376 during the Goryeo Dynasty. Silleuksa Temple is also called the “Wall Temple” due to the multi-storied pagoda that can be found in the temple. The Gangwolheon arbor, named for the great Buddhist monk Naongseonsa's posthumous Buddhist name, allows us to imagine woodsmen of long ago taking a break in the shade of the arbor to recite poetry. Many people come to visit Silleuk sa Temple for the surrounding majestic scenery. (The temple houses 7 treasures and 1 tangible cultural relic.)
