This is a stupa in Jeongrimsa site of Buyeo, which has the shape
that 5-story body stands on the narrow and low 1 stylobate. 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.
A thin and wide roof stone is lifted tenderly at 4 corners, which

technique and the shape of the thin and wide roof stone follow the
style of wooden structure honestly, however it shows refined and
creative formation not a simple imitation and whose entire shape
is majestic and beautiful.
