I went herr on a slightly rainy day. The fog made it mysterious. The workers were very friendly, and there were many temples to pop my head in and explore inside. Bring the good camera because there are lots of pictures to take.

I have visited many temples over the years in Korea. This is a very nice temple that is not overrun with a large crowd and it allows you to enjoy the serenity of the location
