Create an itinerary including Naksansa Temple
One of the eight greatest scenic areas in the east of Korea, Naksansa Temple has served for centuries as a place of prayer and meditation in pristine natural surroundings. Situated on top of the mountain of the same name, it was built thanks to a Buddhist monk who, after a several days’ meditation, claimed he had seen a goddess who told him to erect a temple there. The spot where he used to meditate now houses a pavilion. Take a walk around the temple and enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline.

  • It's simply the best place to go. Nice 90 minutes walk here and there. You will love it! I visit here once a year. It's a must. No brainer
  • Oceanic view from the temple is priceless. Don't expect tranquil and peaceful vibe here. You get to see so many tourists.
  • Very good view White waves too long And temple are very good Sokcho you must be visit Temple and beach Very very good
  • Took 30min to top of 낙산사. But very valuable for visiting here
  • The is the biggest and best temple in Korea. The natural surroundings, vegetation, and sheer size dwarf the other temples.
