Templestay – Naesosa Temple (Buan, Jeollabuk-do)
Introduction to Temple
Naesosa Temple, which means “Come Revive Temple” in English, is located in Buan, Jeollabuk-do. Naesosa Temple is located just south of Gwaneum-bong (Gwanseeum-bosal Peak) in the southern part of Byeonsan Bando National Park. Naesosa Temple was first established in 633 A.D. At that time, two temples were built. They were Daesoraesa Temple and Sosoraesa Temple. Daesoraesa Temple was later destroyed by fire, and all that remained of the two was Sosoraesa Temple.
Sosoraesa Temple was later rebuilt in 1633 by Master Cheongmin after all the temple buildings were destroyed during the Imjin War (1592-1598). It was also around this time that the temple was renamed Naesosa Temple. The name of the temple is in reference to all that enter the temple being blessed and having their wishes come true. The temple was later repaired in 1869. Naesosa Temple is home to three Korean Treasures.
Naesosa Temple conducts the Relaxation – Rebirth: “Wish Everyone Refresh Your Mind & Body” Templestay program at their temple. The program is a one night, two day program that has a pretty open schedule for visitors.
