First built by Sinseung in the 27th year of the reign of King Jinheung (566) of Silla, Daebisa Temple was repaired by State Preceptor Wongwang in the 22nd year of the reign of King Jinpyeong (600). The temple had originally been situated in Bakgok-ri village before it was moved to its present site during the Goryeo Dynasty. Daeungjeon Hall, enshrined with a statue of Sakyamuni Buddha, is presumed to have been built around the sixteenth century. It comprises 3-kan (a unit of measurement referring to the distance between two columns) front space and 3-kan side space and It has a gable roof called matbaejibung. The well-built hall has a sturdy framework of bracketing. The method and style of the bracketing show well the architectural trend of the early and mid Joseon Dynasty.
