Hwaeomsa (Sino-Korean: hwa-eom-sa 華嚴寺, literally "Flower Garland Temple") is a head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is located on the slopes of Jirisan, in Masan-myeon, Gurye County, in the province of South Jeolla Province, South Korea. It was constructed under the Silla in 544, burned down during the Japanese invasions of Korea in the 1590s and rebuilt thereafter.
Four National Treasures of South Korea are located within the temple: Gakhwangjeon Hall, an ancient stone lantern, a three-storied stone pagoda supported by four stone lions and the Lion Pagoda of Hwaeomsa in front of Wontongjeon Hall.
