The Tripitaka Koreana, the most complete collection of Buddhist texts, were engraved on 80,000 woodblocks between 1237 and 1248. They are stored in the Temple of Haeinsa on Mount Kaya, built in the 15th century to house the woodblocks and remarkable for the conservation techniques used to preserve them. The Tripitaka Koreana are regarded by Buddhist scholars for their outstanding accuracy and quality.
