  • Haenisa, the temple in which the Tripitaka Koreana is stored, is the 32nd national treasure of Korea. I consider that this place is the better experience that you can have.
  • In South Korea, Haeinsa Temple is considered as one of the most important Buddhist temple. After being burned down in the fire, the temple was rebuilt. The temple still contains complete copy of Buddhist scriptures and is worth a visit.
  • It is my 2nd times visit here this time beautiful than last time.
  • 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.
