When thinking of pagodas in Koguryo, the first question that comes to mind is where the first pagoda can be found. Also, the origin of the characteristics of Koguryo's pagodas is a problem. For example, what is the history of the one pagoda-three image hall pattern (_??__??__??__??__??__??_) in the composition of Buddhist temple, and what the background of the the octagonal shape of the pagoda? In this paper I emphasize the fact that the cultural background of the characteristics of pagodas in Koguryo can be found in Koguryo's ancient tombs.
