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.

Naksansa Temple Reviews
양양에 위치하고 있는 최고의 사찰이라고 생각합니다. 산책로도 잘 만들어져 있는데 바람이 불면 흙길에 모래바람이 불기 때문에 주의가 필요합니다. 의상대, 홍련암, 해수관음상 등 너무나도 아름다운 곳이 많기 때문에 꼭 방문하시는 것을 권해드립니다. more »I think it's the best temple in Yangyang. The promenade is also well made, but be careful as the wind blows the dirt road and the wind blows. There are so many beautiful places such as medical houses, red-lily cancer, and sea water canons, so it is recommended that you visit.
주차비, 입장료가 유료이지만, 충분한 값어치가 있습니다. 볼거리가 다양하고, 관리가 잘되어 있습니다. 특히, 제일 먼곳에 위치한 홍련암은 반드시 가봐야 합니다. 암자 마루 바닥을 통해 바닷가 절벽을 볼 수 있어요. more »Parking fees and entrance fees are charged, but there is a good value. There are a variety of things to see and do, and they are well maintained. In particular, the most distant red lily rock is a must-see. You can see the beach cliffs through the amja floor.
Very beautiful temple with a long history. Highly recommend to visit there once in a life. If you can go there in a lunch time, korean traditional noodle is free.
**** Awesome Biddhist temple!! **** The best place to visit in YangYang.
