Hoguksa Temple was built during the Goryeo Period and originally named 'Naeseongsa'.

This temple appears to had been built with reconstruction of Jinjuseong Castle to keep off the Japanese invaders and raise monk soldiers in it.

It was a base of monk army during the Imjinwaeran War. It is said that King Sukjong ordered to reconstruct the castle and named 'Hoguksa'(means defense of the fatherland) after the war, in appreciation of the monk soldiers who sacrificed their lives to defend the castle during the 2nd Jinjuseong Battle.
