Naksansa Temple, Yangyang-gun

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 a good idea to look at the top of the landscape is really being on top of the mountain. With the sea on three sides are flared as open space. Until 11:00 at weekends, visitors have to wait in line to offer to eat the noodles. Giving it for free, but it is really good. Memorabilia at the entrance to the driveway to be able to see the sea, drinking tea.
