Temple Complexes

Yeoju Headquarters Temple Complex

This temple complex is located in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province. Surrounded by low mountains, the temple complex has a warm and cozy ambience. With a mountain behind it and Namhan River in front of it, the geographical site of Yeoju Headquarters temple complex perfectly qualifies as a propitious site. This temple complex was built on the best type of energy hub recognized in Fengshui.
The temple complex was built in November 1986, and the current Main Sanctuary Building (Bonjeon) and Daesoon Assembly Hall were added in 1990 due to a rapid increase in the number of disciples. As the number of followers grew, the headquarters was moved to this location back in 1993. It was from this moment that Daesoon Jinrihoe truly started to gain recognition from the general public as a representative Korean religion. There are 40 buildings harmoniously arranged in their stately glory on a site of 165,000㎡. Most major rituals and events such as Holy Works (Gongbu)*, Lecture (Sugang)*, and Devotional Offering (Chiseong) are performed at this location.

*Holy Works (Gongbu) : the most important form of spiritual cultivation which is performed by a team of 36 participants who devotedly recite certain incantations for 24 hours without a break. It has been carried out since the Summer Solstice of 1991 and continues into the present day. *Lecture (Sugang) : a three-day educational course performed by a team of 72 members to enhance their qualifications as disciples.


Main Sanctuary Building (Bonjeon)
This is the most sacred building with Yeongdae on the fourth and highest floor where 15 different divine positions including Sangje are enshrined. Main Sanctuary Building is a four-story building even though it appears to be three stories from the outside. Various ritual ceremonies and events are held in this building.

Cheonggye Pagoda
This pagoda represents the cosmology of Daesoon Jinrihoe. This consists of four main parts: the pedestal, lower body, upper body, and top.
The pedestal part is composed of three layers. The first layer is engraved with Ox Seeking Pictures (Simudo) that represent our cultivation process while the second one has the Four Deity Pictures (Sashindo) that represent the four seasons and four directions. The third one depicts the Twelve Deities of the Chinese Zodiac (Sibijisindo) that correspond to the twelve months and twelve directions.
The lower body of the pagoda consists of three octagonal layers engraved with twenty-four divinities who are in charge of the twenty-four seasonal divisions.
The upper body consists of seven quadrangular layers engraved with twenty-eight divinities in charge of the twenty-eight constellations of the four directions.
The top consists of nine round layers which represent the Ninth Heaven, the highest place in the universe containing the seat of Sangje who coordinates the whole universe from that location.
This pagoda is a monumental sculpture which shows the entire divine system of the universe consisting of Sangje and many other great deities in charge of the 24 seasonal divisions, the 28 constellations, and other such systems. It was built to celebrate the establishment of Yeoju Temple Complex in October 1986.

Geumgangsan Toseong Training Temple Complex

This temple complex is located on the foothills of Sinseon Peak (1,204m), the first of 12,000 peaks in the Geumgang Mountains. It has a commanding view of the East Sea to its front. This location reminds us of the following words spoken by Sangje: “In the future, the Heavenly Energy contained in the 12,000 peaks of Geumgang Mountains will bring forth the great 12,000 Dotong-gunja*.” Meanwhile, it is also important to note that this temple complex enshrines a Maitreya Buddha Statue and the tomb of Dojeon. The temple complex and Maitreya Buddha Statue are open to the public for sightseeing.
This temple complex is the latest edifice and was built in 1995. It is located on a site measuring 115,700㎡ with 13 structures such as the Bonjeon, Pojeong Gate, Jonggak Pavilion, and the Rest Center. Jonggak Pavilion has the Daewon Bell inside, which is the same size as the one in Yeoju headquarters and both bells are tied for being the biggest in the nation. Noehwa Drum has a diameter of 2.5m and is located at Pojeong Gate. The temple complex has been running the Geumgangsan Six-day Training Course with a team of 120 members for more than 20 years since its inception in December 1995.

*Dotong-gunja : those who have the wisdom to fully understand everything in the universe beyond space and time while possessing the empowerment to do all things at their will.

Pocheon Cultivation Temple Complex

This temple complex is located on the foothills of Wangbang Mountain (773m) in Seondan-dong, Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province. This place is called ‘Seondan-dong’, which means ‘altar’ in Korean. This is where ritual ceremonies used to take place to honor ancient deities. Given that the construction of this temple fulfills the namesake, 'Seondan-dong', it is even more meaningful that so many of the great deities of Heaven and Earth have been enshrined there.

This temple complex was built in July 1992 with five buildings on a site measuring 33,000㎡. Daejin University is located next to this temple complex. The Special Incantation Training was once performed at this location, and now, Three-day Education Courses (Sugang) are currently held there and are conducted by a team of 72 members.

Junggok Temple Complex

This temple complex is located on the foothills of Yongma Mountain which is connected to Bukhan Mountain and Surak Mountain, and it commands a view of the Han River toward its front. This is the first Daesoon Jinrihoe temple complex which was built in June 1969. It was at this temple complex that the fundamental system of Daesoon Jinrihoe’s religious body was established and new religious works began according to annual plans.

Jeju Training Temple

This temple is located in Nohyeong-dong, Jeju upon which the vital force of Halla Mountain is centered. The temple is a modern style building consisting of seven stories and a basement all of which was completed in July 1989 on a site measuring 2,600㎡. Yeongdae and Daesoon Seongjeon (a hall with sacred paintings) are located on the 7th floor.

Branch Temples

Besides these five temple complexes, there are hundreds of fellowship buildings and assembly halls, and thousands of propagation centers, which are striving to spread Sangje’s teachings all over the country.
