It was designated as Jejudo Monument 13 on August 26th, 1971. The exact period of construction is unknown, yet records indicate that the temple had undergone extended work for 10 years from 1269 (10th year of King Wonjong) to 1279 (5th year of King Chungryeol). According to 《Tamnaji》, an archive, the temple was closed before 1653. The old temple site was found during the excavation investigation in 1983. The temple site was discovered in the site of the current Daeungjeong Hall. According to experts, the building was as spacious as 5 kans (room) in the front and 4 kans (room) to the side and 330㎡ stylobate. It has an old and peculiar style, with 2 layers for the foundation stones of the stylobate and an elevated area where the Myeonseok is. Old tiles and pottery fragments suggest this place was built between the 10th and 12th century. The current main temple was reconstructed in 1987. Beophwasa Temple was one of the temples built by the state for the good of the country, and used to have as many as 280 slaves. However, the temple was forced to reduce the number of slaves in 30 in 2408. Another record indicates that in 1406 (6th year of King Taejong), the temple was forced to give a Seated Amitabha Buddha Triad to the Ming Dynasty as a tribute.
