A great day spent at this peaceful sight. Who would have thought to build a temple at this gulf with the backdrop of the mountains so many centuries ago? Magnificent!

We loved our visit to this temple. The steps leading from the temple are quite narrow and steep, so easier to take small children in carrier than a stroller. There’s a lot of beautiful buildings and a wonderful view of the sea. Take you time...More

Certainly the most beautiful in Korea. A lovely attraction to enjoy. Many scenic shots to capture the moments. Do expect crowds and take precautions on the steep stairs. It a little long way off but it presents an excuse to visit the Premium Outlet nearby.

Go during a holiday to see 1000 of people (or go when it's a bit slower). Walk over the the nearby village for a slice of real Korean life. Visit the nearby restaurants for great Korean food.

We visited this temple on a Sunday afternoon. We used a combination of subway and public bus and it took us a while to get there. One good thing is that the buses announce the stop and it was easy to identify the bus stop...More

One of the nicest temples I have been, not just because of the architecture of the temple but also the nature landscape around the temple. There isn't much to do here but it's still quite worth a visit if you enjoy architecture.

This temple has one of the most impressive location for temple, located at seaside with beautiful sea shore view. The temple per se has nothing impressive with the main temple and surrounding temples with average buddha statues like in Japan and China. The view from...More

The bus 181 takes you there. If you do not have a bus stop with that number take 100 - 101 or any other bus which can take to the stop. Once you reach to the place one must walk about a mile to get to the entrance of the... More

I'd also recommend the City Bus has 3 or 4 routes and take you to many spots along the way - hop on hop off. It's about 12,000 wan for the day ticket.
