Why this is a
Masterpiece

A representative work of Goryeo stone structures, this stupa inherits the style of the previous kingdom of Unified Silla. It is designed as Korean Treasure No.351.

History of the Object
This stone stupa, or shrine for the sarira pearls found in the cremated ashes of Buddhist masters, is believed to have been erected at Borisa Temple in Yongmun-myeon, Yangpyeong-gun, Gyeonggi Province. The sarira inside the stupa were presumably retrieved from the cremated body of the great monk Taegyeong (862-930 C.E.).
