Kwangbop Temple

 
The Kwangbop Temple was built at the time of Koguryo dynasty (B.C.277-A.D.668).
It is located in Taesong-dong, Taesong District, Pyongyang.
Many temples were built at the time of King Kwanggaetho in the area of Pyongyang.
The Kwangbop Temple was one of them.
  
  
It had undergone a renewal in 1727 and was restored to the original state in 1990 after the total destruction in the bombing in July 1952 during the Fatherland Liberation War.
It was a routine layout of a temple in the Koguryo time with the distribution of buildings on four sides around a pagoda.
The main building of the temple is a magnificent two-storied gabled house.
The monument has a record on the legend about the nine dragons and 99 ponds in the Mt. Taesongguryong.
Seated in the scenic Mt. Taesong is one of the valuable cultural heritages showing in full the developed architecture of the Korean nation and well preserved as a national treasure.
