      Three-storey stone tower
      This is a ceremonial object that was built to hold the Sari, the bone of Buddha. It is an important item in a temple as well as a Geumdang which holds a statue of Buddha. Sometimes, sutras etc. are placed here instead of a statue of Buddha. This stone tower was originally three-storey, but the basement and 1st storey disappeared, and only some part of the upper storey and the body stone and capstone of the 2nd and 3rd storey remained. The body stone and cap stone are one stone each, and the body stone has no special engravings except for the relief on the corner column. It is narrow bodied compared to the 4-storey support and the simple expression without special decorations shows that it was made in the Age of Goryeo.
