- The Temple of Haeinsa, on Mount Gaya, is home to the Tripitaka Koreana, the complete collection of Buddhist texts, laws, and treaties engraved on approximately 80,000 woodblocks between 1237 and 1248.
The Printing Woodblocks of the Tripitaka Koreana, made during the Goryeo period, are housed in the Janggyeong Panjeon complex specially made for that purpose in 1488 at Haeinsa Temple.
As the oldest remaining buildings at the temple, the Tripitaka depositories are marked by the uniquely scientific and highly effective method of controlling ventilation and moisture to ensure the safe storage of the old woodblocks.
