This is one of my favorite temples in Korea, rivaling the Haedong temple in Busan. Apart from its beauty and scale, you are in close proximity to Naksan beach and also to several boats should you want to go out for a day of fishing.

A beautiful temple and grounds. Be prepared for a lot of stairs up and down. It has great views of the ocean and surrounding beaches. A lot of history!
