This is a poem composed and written in calligraphy by King Jeongjo (1752-1800) relating his feelings about the structure of Munsangjeongsa Temple and its natural surroundings. Written in a rectangular writing style, it displays a compact composition and a decent arrangement between the margins and lines. The strokes of the handwriting feel energetic yet soft.
