  • This wonderful complex, which you reach by hiring a car from Daegu and Palgongsan, when paired with the Donghwa-sa and Gatbawi, will be the most beautiful and interesting of the whole area. One of the oldest Buddhist temples in Korea and UNESCO. It is famous for the end of the 14th century the Tripitaka Koreana, 81,258 wooden tablets with the entire collection of Buddhist scriptures. These can only glimpse from outside. The temple is a real Museum and must be visited with all the calm that you can, there are several pavilions and linger on the beautiful Buddhist paintings. Before you go take a trip to the small but provided you can do some shopping shop simpatico. The temple is open from 8 to 11 and 12 to 17. 3,000 WON admission. The car will have to pay a ticket to get to the entrance, don't make the mistake of letting her down to save some change.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The temple complex is very impressive. Many years before Gutenberg writings were printed with movable type in Korea. The oldest book in the world "Jikji" was printed in Korea (Wikipedia)
