Hwaeomsa (Sino-Koreanhwa-eom-sa 華嚴寺, literally "Flower Garland Temple") is a head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is located on the slopes of Jiri-san, in Masan-myeon, Gurye County, in the province of Jeollanam-do, South Korea. It was constructed under the Silla dynasty in 544, burned down during the Seven Year War in the 1590s, and rebuilt thereafter.
Four national treasures of South Korea are located within the temple. These include Gakhwangjeon Hall, an ancient stone lantern, and a three-storied stone pagoda supported by four stone lions. There are eight treasures of South Korea such as the Lion Pagoda in front of Wontongjeon Hall. (Source)
