Even though Taebongsa Temple was not a large one, there were interesting things. What attracted me was the pillar of Myeong Bu Jeon Hall sitting by the Main Hall, Daewungjeon Hall.

Myeogbujeon is a different name of Jijangjeon where people pray for the dead.

It seemed to be built not for a long time ago.

As getting closer, I could see those simple steps. The round shape stone poll looked different style.

What really made interesting was the pillars of half wood and half stone.

Usually, the pillar was made by the wood. But in this hall, the pillar consisted of the two parts. In my memory, it was the first time to see this style.

People can say why this style is special, but in traditional architecture, changing a method and the material is really a matter of importance.

In my guess, they seemed to use the stone materials to prevent the corrosion of the pillar from the water.
