    We visited a couple of temples and my daughter (who lived in Daegu for a year) visited a number of temples. This was a definite favorite. If you only have time to tour one temple, go to Donghwasa.  more »

    One of the biggest temple in place of cod palgongsan and those who do visit, just like cancer around him. Consider the story of King Street with the suggested nominee rock name (Solitaire, mistaken seats), Shin Sung-gyeom also endured a battle between hood and the King considered whon the cod and there are a lot of those nominations and related cancers

Where to stay in Daegu

Daegu offers numerous high-quality, Western-style hotel options, clustering around the subway stations and downtown areas. With only one hostel, budget lodgings are scarce; however, even the mid-range hotels remain relatively affordable. Premium four- and five-star high-rise chains abound, offering pools and gyms, and often overlooking pleasant park greenery or the city's Kumho River. With transport links so well served, choose somewhere for its amenities and reputation, a spot of comfort to use as your city base.
