Maehyang is the rite of planting a juniper or burning incense in order to worship the god of the heaven and the earth.
Maehyangbi is the monument to record the procedure and host of the rite.
Since the natural stone was used without any modification, the monument is rough.
The sizes of the letter are not consistent and each line has different numbers of the letters.
However, the letters in the epitaph still harbors the former style of the writing.
According to the translation of the monument, the Buddhist monk, making a group of 4100 monks, performed the Maehyang Rite for the stability and the prosperity of the country at the late of Goryeo Dynasty.
The Monk named Dalgong wrote the Epitaph; Suan did the calligraphy; and Kim Yong engraved the calligraphy.
Erected in the thirteenth year of King Uh of Goryeo (1387), the monument is valuable material that tells the purpose and time of its building and the old custom and the society of the late Goryeo Dynasty.
