Haeinsa is one of the Three Jewel Temples (three principal Buddhist temples) of Korea and represents Dharma or the Buddha's teachings (the two others represents the Buddha, and the sangha or Buddhist community). As such, Haeinsa is most noted for holding the Tripitaka Koreana, the whole of the Buddhist Scriptures carved onto 81,350 wooden printing blocks. The 14th century building holding the blocks at Haeinsa was so ingeniously designed that it surpassed modern preservation techniques. When test woodblocks were moved to a modern storage complex, they developped mildew, so the intended move was canceled and the woodblocks remained at Haeinsa. Haeinsa Temple Janggyeong Panjeon, the Depositories for the Tripitaka Koreana Woodblocks is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
