 Description The Hall of Sakamuni in Neugasa Temple, rebuilt in the mid 18th century, is a structure that covers an area of 190m2 with five bays, each of which is about 180cm wide, on the front and three bays on the sides.

Like other profusely bracketed structures, the building also has roof-supporting bracket systems with three outward arms and four inward arms.

The way of carving the column-top blocks and the exquisite decoration of the interior using the lotus-bud design are similar to those of the Halls of Sakamuni in Bulgapsa Temple in Yeonggwang and Gaeamsa Temple in Buan, which were designated as national treasures.

The bracket arm carved in relief on the wall between the bracket systems is rarely found in temple structures.

This building has both academical and historical significance, providing valuable information on the temple construction of the mid/late Joseon Dynasty in Honam province.
