One of the eight greatest scenic areas in the east of Korea, Naksansa Temple has served for centuries as a place of prayer and meditation in pristine natural surroundings. Situated on top of the mountain of the same name, it was built thanks to a Buddhist monk who, after a several days’ meditation, claimed he had seen a goddess who told him to erect a temple there. The spot where he used to meditate now houses a pavilion. Take a walk around the temple and enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline.

Very nice visit.
산이 크게 가파르지 않고 해수관음상 앞에는 매점도 있어서 아이들과 아이스크림도 사먹고 구경하기 좋았습니다. 아이들에게 종 치는 경험도 시킬수 있었고 경치도 아름답고 재방문하고 싶은 곳이었습니다. more »The hotel is located in the heart of the city. It was a great place to visit.
