Daeheungsa Temple, located in the background of the scenic view of Duryunsan Mountain, there are many theories about the period of Daeheungsa Temple but it follows the records of AdoHwasang’s establishment in the fifth year of King Jinheung of Silla (544).
The temple was built by various ancient monks to become a great temple of both gyojong and Seonjong, and the scale of the temple was expanded especially after Seosan Buddhist master.
It is also famous a dense, long forest road that enters the temple from the entrance of the temple and a tombstone field with several ancient monks, including Seosan Buddhist master, who has established great virtues in the flourishing of the temple.

The signboard hung on the temple compound is written by renowned Joseon Dynasty writers and offers a glimpse into the true character of Joseon Dynasty calligraphy, especially the signboard on the Daeungbojeon Hall, famous for its anecdotes of Chusa Kim Jeong-hui and Wongyo monk.
Chusa, who was on his way to Jeju Island, stopped by Daeheungsa Temple to drop off Wongyo’s handwriting signboard, saying he didn’t like it, but when he came back from exile, Jeju Island, he made him walk again and put down the signboard of his signboard “Muryangsujeon”
He built a virtue of humility in Jeju Island’s exile. When you pass the bridge and climb to the top of Duryunsan Mountain, you can see the scenery of Dadohae National Marine Park at a glance, which is a great place to visit.
