  • The size of the temple and the entrance to the stone day of the room is a temple with palm trees and tangerine trees, but an outsider feels like a tourist destination. It seems to be the temple stay, and it is recommended for experience to foreigners...

  • The great Woong-Jeon is incredibly large, and the Buddha statue is huge. Great for a quiet walk. It was impressive because every tree had a yellow fruit.

  • I arrived to this temple because it was on my route between Seogwipo waterfalls. I was amazed. I thought I had seen enough temples, but this was something else. It is majestic with the palm trees and little ponds in front of it. This has been one of my favourite temples in South-Korea so far.
  • The temple is wonderful, and the temple stay was one of the most amazing experience I had in my life. Thanks for everything!
