A View of the Main Hall at Jogyesa Temple in Jongno, Seoul.
Hello Again Everyone!!
Jogyesa Temple, in the heart of Seoul, was first established in 1938. When the temple was first established, a building from Gakhwangsa Temple in neighbouring Susong Park was transferred to the present Jogyesa Temple grounds. This building, which no longer exists, was funded nationally for Korea’s first Korean Buddhist mission. At this time it was renamed Taegosa Temple. The temple changed its name, after the Buddhist Purification Movement in 1954, to its current name of Jogyesa Temple.
