So Jeong Bang, general of Tang who conquered Baekjae with allied forces with Shilla engraved the phrase of "memorial to conquer Baekjae" on it, thus it had been humiliated wrongly called "Pyeongjetop" at one time.

 

On the stylobate, pillar stones are inserted in the middle of each side and corner, each body stone of the stupa body has a pillar at every corner, which applies entasis technique of wooden structure that top and bottom are narrow and the middle is bulged.
