It is the Three-story Stone Pagoda in Namsa-ri, Gyeongju. Three-story body stands on the double-tiered base. It’s 4.07 m height. Pillars were engraved on the corner and the side of the base and the body stone. It’s a typical stone pagoda of the Unified Silla period. Because the body of the pagoda shows a stereotype style, it is estimated to have been built in the end of the unified Silla period
The temple site is located on the hill behind the village and near the traffic route to Gyeongju and Yeongcheon. No artifact was excavated and no records about this temple site remain. It is presumed to have been a temple to honor the royal family or nobility.
With its body erected on a double-tiered platform, this stone pagoda is typical of the Silla Period. It displays a harmoniously proportionate body. Its platform feature exquisite carving, but the body displays a rather formalized flow. The styles and techniques indicate that it was built towards the end of the 9th century.
