This is a cultural and historic site as it houses the Buddhist sacred texts, the Tripitaka Koreana. It is a peaceful and beautiful setting which is very well maintained. more »

I stayed here as part of a group staying overnight as a "Temple Stay" The temple is ancient and the location is beautiful as is the temple and the gardens. Temple stay rules are fairly strict. No smoking, no alcohol and the sexes are segregated at night (even married couples). Food is basic and vegetarian. You eat what the monks eat but you can bring in your own snacks. Beware that there are no food outlets nearby. Lights out at 9 pm and you sleep on thin mattresses on the floor. The temple houses a unique copy of the "Tripitaka", a Buddhist text, carved on to wooden plates which were used to print the text on paper.. These are not accessible to the public but may be glimpsed through the ventilation slats of the ancient building which houses them. You can opt out of some activities but it is worth getting up at 3 am to watch the beating of the massive temple drum and take part in the chanting and meditation.

Beautiful temple and with a great heritage. The walks around the temple are also nice.

Home of the over 750-year-old wood printing blocks of the Buddhist canon 'Tripitaka' - 81,258 wooden blocks in pristine condition, comprised of a staggering 52,330,152 hand-carved characters. You'll only be able to take a closer look at the blocks from the beginning of 2017 as it's closed to the public now. The surrounding area of Gayasan National Park is itself a wonder, and there are nice walking/hiking trails ('Sorigil' 소리길) close to the main road and river.

One of the holiest sites in South Korea and for Buddhism. The temple stay program is great and should be on any trip itinerary for South Korea.
