Seokgatap Pagoda -
Seokgatap is a native Korean pagoda with clean proportions and minimal detailing. It is similar in style to most pagodas in the Gyeongju area, though superior in craftsmanship. Intact after thirteen centuries, it stands twenty-seven feet high, ringed by eight stones shaped like lotus flowers, perhaps symbolizing the eight lotus flowers that fell from heaven as prophesied in the Lotus Sutra.
During the reconstruction work some items were discovered within, including a sutra, a sari box, silver sutra plates, and the oldest wooden printing blocks in the world, a copy of the Dharani sutra printed after 704 AD.
