One of the best experiences in Korea. The worshipers included us in a meal, and the monks invited us for tea, incredibly welcoming gestures. Besides the beautiful buildings, the grounds are unbelievably peaceful. We left wishes written on rice paper and tied to lanterns. Temple-stay is definitely in the future.
Located in GangNam district which is one of the business and cultural center of Seoul. Build over 1,200 years ago and coexisting with rapid developments of the area. Great place to meditate and get a glimpse of Korean Buddhism.
It's a temple, you could find peace. It's also nearby the subway station. When I come here, I had a very good experience.
Interesting temple which is surround by modern Gangnam architecture.
Small little and nicely kept temple. Nice to walk around in.
