On the front of this coin is the Pagoda of BulGuksa (Pulguksa) Buddhist Temple at Kyongju, built in 540 A.D.
The Bulguksa Temple is one of Korea's best-known temples, a testimony to both the skill of the Silla dynasty's architecture, and the depth of Buddhist faith at that time.
While most of the wooden buildings were rebuilt over the centuries, all the stone bridges, stairways and pagoda, still preserve their original forms.
Kyongju was the capital of the Silla Kingdom, and is known as a famous cultural city. The city itself could be said to be a museum. It’s filled with the remains of the ancient Silla Kingdom.
The two great treasures of Kyongju are the Pul-guk-sa Temple, and the stone grotto called Sok-ku-ram. Royal crowns, pottery and other artifacts are displayed in the Kyongju National Museum.
Po-mun Lake Resort is surrounded by the ancient city of Kyongju. Bulguksa Temple and Seokguram Grotto were designated as World Cultural Heritage sites by UNESCO in the 1990’s.
The Unified Silla Kingdom(676-935) promoted the development of culture and arts. The popularity of Buddhism reached its peak during this period.
The Unified Silla Kingdom declined because of contention for supremacy amoung the noble classes. It was annexed by Goryeo in 935 A.D.
