Specialist craftsmen of Baekje chose stones in order to pass the limitation of wooden pagoda. In the early stage, stone pagodas just imitated the structure of a wooden pagoda but they gradually became smaller and simpler. The Five-storied stone pagoda of Jeongnim Temple Site looks elegant due to its refined formative beauty against the Mereuksaji Stone Pagoda which is not standardized the details. Though the pagoda faithfully follows the formation of wooden buildings with a single narrow and low pedestal, thin and wide and raised roof stones, but it is not just an imitation, rather it is a refined and creative work. The pagoda is highly valued as an origin style of stone pagodas in Korea.
