Bogyeongsa Temple has the splendid and beautiful Jungnamsan Mountain at its back, and is surrounded by a chain of small mountains from Naeyeonsan Mountain. The temple embraces clean stream water flowing from a deep valley, which is famous for 12 waterfalls.

In AD602, the 25th year in the reign of King Jinpyeong in the Silla Kingdom, Daedeok Jimyeong, a Buddhist high priest who returned to Silla after studying in China, said to King Jinpyeong, "If you discover a propitious site from a famous mountain on the east coast, bury Palmyeonbogyeong, which is a scripture, and build a Buddhist temple, you will be able to prevent Japanese pirates from invading Silla, and you will unify the Three Kingdoms." The king was glad and went upward along the coast passing Pohang. He saw a mountain covered with clouds in five colors. That mountain was Naeyeonsan Mountain.

He filled up a pond and buried Palmyeonbogyeong. Then he established a temple and named the Bogyeongsa Temple.

The temple contains Seowunam Rock, Cheongryeonam Rock, Munsuam Rock, and Bohyeonam Rock.
