Suguksa Temple

Suguksa Temple (StreetView)
This temple was built in 1459 after Crown Prince Uigyeong died at the age of twenty. His father, King Sejo, had the temple, FKA Jeonginsa, built in the prince’s honor. In 1712, the temple was designated as the guardian temple for the tombs of King Sukjong and Queen Inhyeon buried at the Seooreung Royal Tomb grounds. Around then, the temple’s name was changed to Suguksa, or “the temple that protects the country.” After a fire at the temple, it was left to ruin for some time until 1900, when it was rebuilt.
