It is a place with a lot of cultural assets such as the Stoned Buddha statues, and the three floored stone tower in front of the main temple. 
Another famous place in Jikisa is the Birojeon(Vairocana Buddha Hall), which you can see when you walk through the forest way and has around 1000 statues of the Buddha. All the statues of the Buddha have different physical appearances. However, the birth statues, which symbolize the birth of Buddha, are the most famous statues among the 1000 statues in Birojeon.
