Five storied stone pagoda of Jeongnimsa Temple site

Five storied stone pagoda of Jeongnimsa Temple site is a pagoda built in the early 6th century when Baekje transferred its capital to Buyeo. The low, thin foundation, pillars in Beheullim Technique, and thin yet wide roofs stick to the basic formation of wooden building. However it is sophisticated and creative. The entire shape is grand and beautiful.

Along with Iksan Mireuksaji Temple Stone Pagoda, it shows the characteristics of pagodas made in early Baekje. The organized form, grand yet sophisticated beauty show off the skills of Baekje artists.

Many pagodas in Chungnam imitated the format of this pagoda.

General So Jeongbang from Tang who destroyed Baekje by allying with Silla left a comment on the pagoda. It is a precious historical resource that conveys the situation of the time.
