Introduction

Tripitaka Koreana, a collection of wooden printing blocks stored in Haeinsa, was originally carved during Goryeo Dynasty. However, when it was destroyed by fire during the Mongol invasions of Korea, King Gojong ordered the revision and recreation of the Tripitaka. Based on the remaining works, the Northern Sung Tripitaka and a Kitan Tripitaka were studied and corrected and after 16 years of carving, the revision, which is the world’s most comprehensive buddhist scriptures, was completed. Tripitaka Koreana has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is the oldest collection of 81,258 wooden carving blocks with no known errors in more than 52,000,000 characters.
In order to shed new light on the historical and cultural significance of the thousand-year old Tripitaka and as a place of finding the true values and understanding of our mankind’s work, the Tripitaka Koreana Record Culture Theme Park offers the historical background behind the creation and collection of the Tripitaka and captures the hidden scientific technology that has kept the Tripitaka alive for over a thousand years.
Gyeongsangnam-do’s Hapcheon is indeed the perfect place in Korea to find the true meaning and value of the Tripitaka Koreana. Please visit Hapcheon and enjoy the magical works of the Tripitaka and wisdoms of Goryeo people.
