  • Beautiful temple, very well maintained, in a quiet place away from the chaos. In the area in front of a set of colored lanterns and a park. We got there via a private taxi tour. Temple must be visited.

  • 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!
