It's less than Bulgoksa in area and you will walkabout 1 km after the bus stop. I anyway enjoy temples . if you have time go and see it. For the first time i saw that they practise a marital play named...Sunmo..and there is 2...More
This temple was magnificent it really represented ancient Korean life back hundreds of years ago it's a good place to go with your family a good stroll deep into the woods and it's nice to get away from the city life.
