The head temple complex of Jogye Korean Buddhism, Bulguksa features two exquisite stone pagodas and a gilded bronze statue of Buddha, which earned it World Heritage Site status. This impressive temple complex set in a picturesque landscape stores some of the world's oldest woodblock prints, made in the first half of the 8th century. Stroll underneath cherry trees and azaleas, place a pebble in a rock garden or touch a pig statue for good luck, and visit a hermitage in the grotto to see burial mounds and a 3.5 m (11.5 ft) tall Buddha. English-speaking volunteer guides will tell you all about the temple's tumultuous history.

The temple is outstanding and the reconstructions it underwent are a witness to Korea's commitment to preserve its past. Highly recommended.
자타공인 대한민국 최고의 관광지 중 하나입니다. 석굴암 다보탑 석가탑 등 최고의 유물이 보존되어 있는 곳이고 단풍이 지는 가을에 산책하기에 특히 아름답습니다. 정상의 석굴암까지는 도보로 이동하기에 체력이 필요한 편이기에 어린이나 노약자와 함께 가시는 분은 자동차로 정상까지 이동하시기를 추천드립니다. 지진피해가 속히 복구되길 바랍니다Now get certified is one of the best tourist destinations in Korea.

This place was an awesome visit! I was on the USS Carl Vinson and we stopped in for a port visit to Pusan. I took a tour to this temple and really enjoyed it there. I too a lot of great pictures and learned more about the Buddhist philosophy and history of S. Korea. I can't wait to take my wife there!
