Sinheungsa is a scenic temple that is a short distance from a large figure of Buddha, which dominates the entry to several of Seoraksan's park walks. Well worth a visit both for the beauty of the buildings and the area surrounding it.

We are luckily to see the actual buddhist chanting when we reached there, the temple is well built and maintain, with natural surrounding cover with trees

First the good. It's easy to find but you must drive there. I noted that there is a bus stop but I didn't note a bus stopping there for the 30 minutes we stopped to eat. The Temple has an interesting history which is told...More
