Kwangbop Temple in Pyongyang

The Kwangbop Temple is situated at the foot of taesong Mountains 13km north of the city centre.
It was built in 392 in the Koguryo Dynasty. It was destroyed in the war and restored in Juche 79(1990).
The Taeung Hall has double hip-saddle roof which is a rare style of Korean Buddhist temples.
Around the Taeung Hall stand the Chonwang Gate, Haethal Gate, east and west monasteries. To the right of the Haethal Gate stands a stone pillar for flying a Buddhist banner and a little futher to the left is a stone monument to the history of the temple.
