A symbol of Zen Buddhism in Korea, Jogyesa in lively downtown Seoul attracts worshipers from all over the world, culminating during the annual May celebrations of Buddha’s birthday. Although the temple was established in the distant 14th century, the current structure dates back to 1938, when it was proclaimed the headquarters of Korean Buddhism. Admire the imposing building and its spacious worship hall, adorned with vibrantly painted decorations and lanterns, or visit the courtyard, which boasts a pair of trees more than half a millennium old.
