Sinheungsa Temple is just a 15 minute walk from the park entrance and is worth a visit. See the four fierce gate gods, enjoy a drink of spring water, see the altar and decorations inside the temple. The temple was constructed about 1400 years ago...More

I wouldn't say that Sinheungso temple is a destination in itself, it is a good add on when visiting Seoroksan National Park. The temple is not far from the main entrance of the park, in a peaceful area without many visitors, nearby a serene creek....More

The temple cannot match the top temples in Japan, but it is only a short walk from the parking lot and you have the feeling that you did not miss anything of importance in the park, like many, many Koreans.

Passed by the Sinheungsa temple during the hike up to Ulsan Peak of Seoraksan. It would be nice and peaceful to try for a temple stay there. If I have another opportunity next time, I will definitely do so.
