We visited the temple while it was snowing and it was just stunning! It must have been very cold for the origonal occupants as there is no heating to speak of.

First the good. It's easy to find but you must drive there. I noted that there is a bus stop but I didn't note a bus stopping there for the 30 minutes we stopped to eat. The Temple has an interesting history which is told...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.

One of the grand temples to visit in Korea. Located just at the base of Seoraksan, this temple complex is huge and very serene.

We visited the temple as part of our visit to Seorak San; it was very interesting , including the reunification Buddha! It is a very old temple and I believe still in use! Worthwhile to visit!

At thr foot of the national park the temple allows you great views of the mountains. It also has an extremely large Buddha statue that is worth seeing in its own right.
