Located in western Mudeungsan, this temple was founded by Julgam Seonsa during the Shilla Dynasty. Like many of Korea's temples, it was destroyed during the Korean War and rebuilt. It houses the oldest structure in the area, the Obaek-jeon, which houses 500 Nahan statues and the 10 judges of the underworld. Just about a kilometer up from Jeungshimsa is Yaksasa, the only temple in the city that survived destruction during the Korean War.
