Yeoju Headquarters Temple Complex
This temple complex is located in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province. Surrounded by low mountains, the temple complex has a warm and cozy ambience. With a mountain behind it and the commanding Namhan River in front of it, the geographical site of this temple is regarded as the best type of energy (gi) hub recognized in Feng Shui. This qualified it perfectly as a propitious site suitable for the construction of a temple complex.
The temple complex was built in November 1986, and the current Main Sanctuary Building (Bonjeon) and Daesoon Assembly Hall were added in 1990 due to a rapid increase in the number of Dao cohorts. As the number of followers kept growing, the headquarters was moved to this location back in 1993. It was from this moment that Daesoon Jinrihoe truly started to gain recognition from the general public as a representative Korean new religion. There are 40 buildings harmoniously arranged in their stately glory on a site of 165,000㎡. Most major rituals and events such as Holy Works (Gongbu), Educational Course (Sugang), Devotional Offering Ceremony (Chiseong), and Headquarters Offering (Bonbuseong) are performed at this location.
Geumgangsan Toseong Training Temple Complex
This temple complex is located on the foothills of Sinseon Peak (1,204m), the first of 12,000 peaks in the Geumgang Mountains. It has a commanding view of the East Sea to its front. This location reminds us of the following words spoken by Sangje: “In the future, the Heavenly Energy contained in the 12,000 peaks of Geumgang Mountains will bring forth the great 12,000 Dotong-gunja.” Meanwhile, it is also important to note that this temple complex enshrines a Maitreya Buddha Statue and the tomb of Dojeon. The temple complex and Maitreya Buddha Statue are open to the public for sightseeing.
This temple complex is the latest edifice and was built in 1995. It is located on a site measuring 115,700㎡ with 13 structures such as the Bonjeon, Pojeong Gate, Jonggak Pavilion, and the Rest Center. Jonggak Pavilion has the Daewon Bell inside, which is the same size as the one in Yeoju headquarters and both bells are tied for being the biggest in the nation. Noehwa Drum has a diameter of 2.5m and is located at Pojeong Gate. The temple complex has been running the Geumgangsan Yeonsu which is a six-day Training Course. It has been performed every week for more than 20 years since its inception in January of 1996 and continues at present.
Pocheon Cultivation Temple Complex
This temple complex is located on the foothills of Wangbang Mountain (773m) in Seondan-dong, Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province. This place is called ‘Seondan’, which means ‘altar’ in Korean. This was where ritual ceremonies used to take place to honor ancient deities. Therefore, given the meaning of 'Seondan', it is even more meaningful that the great deities of Heaven and Earth have been enshrined in this temple.
This temple complex was built in July 1992 with five buildings on a site measuring 33,000㎡. Daejin University is located next to this temple complex. Special Incantation Training was performed at this temple at one period in time.
Junggok Temple Complex
This temple complex is located on the foothills of Yongma Mountain which is connected to Bukhan Mountain and Surak Mountain, and it commands a view of the Han River toward its front. This is the first Daesoon Jinrihoe temple complex which was built in June 1969. It was at this temple complex that the fundamental system of Daesoon Jinrihoe’s religious body was established and new religious works began according to annual plans.
Jeju Training Temple
This temple is located in Nohyeong-dong, Jeju upon which the vital force of Halla Mountain is centered. The temple is a modern style building consisting of seven stories and a basement, all of which was completed in July 1989 on a site measuring 2,600㎡. Yeongdae and Daesoon Seongjeon (a hall with sacred paintings) are located on the 7th floor.
Besides these five temple complexes, there are more than a hundred Fellowship Buildings and Fellowship Halls, and more than six hundred Propagation Centers connected to Local Branches. All these institutions strive to spread Sangje’s teachings all over the country.
