This granite pagoda from the late Baekje period in Buyeo-eup, Buyeo-gun, Chungcheongnam-do has been designated National Treasure No. 9. It is generally known as the “Baekje Five-story Pagoda.”
In the past, it was once referred to as “Pyeongjetap” by mistake. As one of two remaining Baekje pagodas, this stone pagoda itself is a precious and important artifact that established the lineage of Korean stone pagoda patterns. With refined and creative features, it exemplifies the beauty and elegance that were imitated in the latter-day pagodas.
