Goryeo 5th floor Stone Pagoda

Goryeo 5th floor stone pagoda
This is a five-storied stone pagoda of the Goryeo period. It is not known its original location. It is said that a Japanese kept it in the garden of his villa in Daecheong-dong during the Japanese Occupation(1910-45). Now it is in a private garden in Oncheon-dong around the Geumgang Park. The original roof stone of the fifth-story and finals are missing. The present finals have been recently replaced. Every part of the main body has no ornament but characteristically the roof supports of the first-and second-story are four-tiered, while the roof supports of the third-and fourth-story are three-tiered. The eaves of each roof take sharp upward turns, giving a buoyant impression.

On the whole, the pagoda represents the typical style of stone pagodas in the Goryeo period. It marks a change from the typical three-storied pagodas of the preceeding Silla period.
