This is the old site of Heungdeoksa Temple in Uncheong-dong, Heungdeok-gu, Cheongju-si, Chungcheongbuk-do. Heungdeoksa Temple was a historical temple where Jikji was published in 1377. It was built before 849, but it is presumed to have been destroyed by a fire immediately after publishing Jikji. The location of Heungdeoksa Temple was confirmed in 1985 when a “bronze gong” with “Heungdeoksa” engraved on it and a “bronze bowl” were excavated from there. Only the Buddha Hall in the center of the temple site has been restored thus far.
