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.

The temple was amazing in general and most of the views were really spectacular! The only issue is the lack of food in the area, strongly suggest u bring food in from the convenience store before you.... more »
