The Temple of Haeinsa on Mount Kaya is home to the Tripitaka Koreana, the most complete collection of Buddhist texts in the world. These texts were incredibly engraved on 80,000 wooden blocks nearly 800 years ago during the Goryeo Dynasty, between the years 1237 and 1248.

Even though nearly 800 years have passed since being carved, the wooden blocks on which the texts are engraved are in near perfect condition.
