Dragons support the new Main Hall, which is named on its signboard "Beob-dang" (Beoptang)
[Dharma Shrine] -- this is very rare; most temples Main Halls are formally named "
or another such formal Buddhist title, and are only informally referred to as "the beob-dang"...
This temple does not display any San-shin icon, but its Main Hall does have an excellent set of
Ten Ox-Herding Paintings:
(R to L)  #1, #2 and #3 on the west side-wall
#4 on the north rear-wall
(R to L)  #5 and #6 on the north rear-wall
#7 on the north rear-wall
(R to L)  #8 and #9 on the east side-wall
#10 on the east side-wall
