Revolving Sutra Case
Non-commercial use only.
Only example of revolving sutra case (yunjangdae 輪藏臺) in Korea (one of a pair). By turning this octagonal wooden sutra receptacle, one could accrue merit. It is not clear when it was made, but likely predates the 1670 refurbishment of the Tripitaka hall (Taejangjon 大藏殿) in which it is placed. Designated Treasure no. 684. It is located in Yongmun-sa (Yech'on).
