A gold sarira engraving (top) and a gold sarira casket have been found in the process of repairing the Iksan Mireuksaji stone pagoda, designated as National Treasure No. 11 in Korea. The engraving shows the wife of King Mu of the Baekje Kingdom was the daughter of Baekje aristocrat Sataek Jeok-deok, contrary to a folktale saying she was Princess Seonhwa, the daughter of Shilla Dynasty King Jinpyeong.
