Taego Order or Taegojong is the second largest order in Korean Buddhism. Seonamsa is one of the head monasteries of Taego and over 8,000 monks and 3,100 temples belong to this order. What sets Taego apart from some of the other Korean sects like Chogye, among other factors, the order allows ordained clergy to marry. This custom is a remnant of the Japanese occupation of Korea.
