Explanation

Seonunsa Temple is known to have been built in year 577, the 24th year of King Wideok of the Baekje dynasty. It is the second head temple of Jogye Order in Jeollabuk-do. According to the temple's historical records, it was originally a very large temple with 87 hermitages and 3,000 monks. Today, only four hermitages remain: Dosolam, Chamdangam, Dongunam, and Seoksangam. In addition, the temple is home to 25 prestigious heritages, namely the Forest of Common Camellias, which is designated as Natural Monument No. 184. A festival dedicated to this forest is held every April.
