  • We got here just in time to witness the demonstration of their martial art school (at 3 I think). Fun:-) then different from solito...il Temple is also very cute especially because is surrounded by greenery. Things to do a bit of a climb to get there. There was also quite a canine that we welcomed and followed along the entire route.-)

  • Use the Golgulsa to suggest an itinerary that I played the first day of visiting the area around Gyeongju. Combined with this temple to visit the Temple of Bulguksa, Seokguram grotto and the temple Ki Rim Sa, to close the day with a visit to the village of Yangdong. I have rented a car for the entire day. The Golgulsa has remarkable a 6th-century Buddha carved in stone, very nice just a pity is covered by a bad glass porch and iron taking off magic instead. You will reach after a "very steep!". Open from 8 to 18, will not pay the ticket. A little further away there is a temple of traditional temple of Shilla period Rim Sa, Ki, very nice. Same time of the previous entry of 1,000 WON. The Bulguksa Temple complex is about sixteen kilometres of Gyeongju and is one of the most visited sites of Korea. Masterpiece of Shilla period is declared a world heritage site. Hard to find without crowds, recommended then the hours of early morning or late afternoon. Entrance from 6 to 18 with KRW 5,000 ticket.
