A beautiful temple and grounds. Be prepared for a lot of stairs up and down. It has great views of the ocean and surrounding beaches. A lot of history!

The Uisangdae Pavilion is under construction; what a pity! Nevertheless our guide recommended that we visit Hongryeonam (small temple built in a stone cave) instead. The grounds were serene and peaceful, but the views were not exactly what I had been expecting. All my photos...More

Serene. Beautiful. This was a side trip recommended by a friend who is a local, before heading to Sokcho. Be relaxed by the sound of the gentle waves of water.
