 HISTORY Bultasa (the name means Gathering of Buddhas  Temple) was founded in 1970. It is the oldest and largest of the Korean Buddhist temples in Chicago.  Bultasa moved to its present location in 1986, when extensive remodeling transformed the building into a temple complex.  Bultasa is staffed by monks of the Chogye Order.  A center of the Korean Buddhist community, Bultasa holds a variety of services and functions, notably a religious service every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. in Korean (English translations can be provided from time to time) and commemorative services for the departed.  There is also a children's Sunday school.
