Abstract

It is considered that it is difficult to build a well-constructed building without proportional or dimensional relationships of precise parts, so it is estimated that Korea has some sort of numerical determination method now. Also, in China there is "Ying Zao Fa Shi" of technical books and it is doubtful that there is no similar technology in Korea with the same architectural flow, given that there are ways to decide "Kiwarisho" in Japan. Therefore, focus on this point and aim to clarify the dimension determination method of Miruk-jõn Hall Kumsan-sa Temple using analysis method of each proportional method in Japan.
