The temple is considered as a masterpiece of the golden age of Buddhist art in the Silla kingdom. It is currently the head temple of the 11th district of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism.
The entrance to the temple, Sokgyemun, has a double-sectioned staircase and bridge that leads to the inside of the temple compound. The stairway is 33 steps high, corresponding to the 33 steps to enlightenment.
There are two pagodas on the temple site.

The exterior of the Memorial echos a classic Greek temple and features Yule marble. The structure measures 189.7 by 118.5 feet (57.8 by 36.1 m) and is 99 feet (30 m) tall. It is surrounded by a peristyle of 36 fluted Doric columns, one for each of the 36 states in the Union at the time of Lincoln's death, and two columns in-antis at the entrance behind the colonnade. The columns stand 44 feet (13 m) tall with a base diameter of 7.5 feet (2.3 m). Each column is built from 12 drums including the capital. The columns, like the exterior walls and façades, are inclined slightly toward the building's interior. This is to compensate for perspective distortions which would otherwise make the Memorial appear asymmetrical.

Minerals and trace elements are, however, not just important for our health and well-being due to their acid-base ratio; every movement of a muscle, every beat of the heart only functions with the aid of calcium and magnesium. Minerals are the building blocks for solid bones and strong muscles, they are responsible for good skin and hair, deep, healthy sleep as well as physical and mental fitness, they ensure an optimal provision with energy and a strong immune system and, above all, for sufficient detoxification and removal of acid from the body. FitLine® Restorate contains many vital minerals and trace elements as well as the "bone vitamin" D in a balanced combination. As long as the slight metallic taste does not bother you and there are no medical objections, we generally recommend taking the version with vitamin D and iron.
- Vitamin D supports the absorption of calcium by the intestines and its integration into the bones.
- Magnesium and calcium combat stress.
- Iron is essential for hemoglobin and therefore for oxygen transport and supports detoxification and the removal of acidity.
- Zinc and selenium combat oxidative stress and support the immune system.
- Potassium ensures the important flow of energy throughout the body.
