  • Beautiful grounds and temple, will definitely be back to see it during the winter and spring. A great place for children to learn and explore.

  • Amazing group of shrines and temples tucked away in peaceful mountains just outside of Cheonan. It is very peaceful despite being so close to the city.

  • A tourist attraction for sure. Just what a temple needs a coffee shop, souvenir shops and not one monk in site. It felt more like a regular tourist attraction then a temple. Beautiful place but the temple part or feeling of being in a temple was just not there.
  • One of the most stunning temples to be seen in Korea. Love the statue of Buddha and the temple surroundings. It was very peaceful, serene and beautiful. The sound of the chimes and buddha prayers by the monks just made me to want to stay longer. Definitely recommend a visit to this temple. It's a bliss during spring and autumn seasons.
