Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism

The five Buddha relic shrines are located at: Sang wonsa Temple on Mt. Odaesan, Bongjeongam Hermitage on Mt. Seoraksan, Beopheungsa Temple on Mt. Sajasan, Jeongamsa Temple on Mt. Taebaeksan, and Tongdosa Temple on Mt. Yeongchuksan. They are called Buddha relic shrines because they enshrine the cremains of Shakyamuni Buddha, symbolizing that the Buddha always dwells there in the joy of nirvana. The Buddha’s cremains represent the Dharma body (Dharmakaya) buddha. Therefore, these shrines are regarded as where the true body of the Buddha resides. The Buddha relic shrines do not enshrine buddha statues. As they enshrine relics of the Buddha to which one can pay respect, only altars are placed in these shrines.
