The temple is a bit small, simple. don’t expect it to big or lots to see. Not far from the parking lot, on easy walk road, no need tracking shoes for this visit. I was there on Sunday before noon and it was quite crowded....More

You could grab bus opposite train terminal, no. 10 or 11 or 700 run frequently go to Bulguksa Temple. From there take the shuttle bus no.12, which run hourly. So check the bus timing. If unsure always check with information counter. They are helpful and speak well English. The total journey from town to Bulguksa probably around an hour. Then from Bulguksa to Seokguram around 40mins bus journey.
