See the giant Buddha statue, reaching almost 20 m 65 (ft) tall, at Donghwasa. Take a cable car ride surrounded by mesmerizing misty hills, or some easily accessible public transport options, to reach the temple. If you're feeling adventurous, try hiking to the site, enjoying the area's pristine nature and lush greenery alon g the way. At the temple, appreciate the ornate pagodas, the main temple, and the stairs shaped like a dragon. Relax by the lake and listen to the sounds of the waterfall, then refresh at the coffee shop near the entrance. The complex offers temple-stay programs, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the Zen vibe and explore your spiritual side.

  • From the station of the subway has become a Globe-Trotter went by (1) express bus. Metro 2-exit bus stop away. It is about 40 minutes to the entrance of the temple. However, caution is required. Was shown in the third photo, made by me (3/22/2018) the gate under construction is not allowed. So, one back from the Dohwasa bus stop, went through the gate near the Donghwagyo bus stop. 20-30 minutes walked down the Hill? I think that people go from this 10-minute check. I think the temple itself is feeling very, very good.

  • At the beginning of March there was no suggestion that we could still see the maple season and go to June 2018, the renovation of the top of the door is not open, it needs to be entered from the lower Phoenix, and in the vicinity of the second ticketing booth, connected minibus can be boarded to the male temple, and then stroll all the way down the road.

  • Really nice scenery. Quiet. Lots of trees. Impressive Buddha statue.
  • Amazing place in the mountains, ancient stone-carved figures and temples, very energetic atmosphere. Nice to learn about the culture and just to walk around!
  • Such a peaceful and respectful atmosphere.
  • Quite a large temple complex. The old pathways through the forest and the more distant smaller temples were more enjoyable.
  • Beautiful and calm... Very nice place to walk specially little early in the morning. If you walk through the wood gate you will see the big Buddha statute.
