This is one of my favorite temples in Korea, rivaling the Haedong temple in Busan. Apart from its beauty and scale, you are in close proximity to Naksan beach and also to several boats should you want to go out for a day of fishing.

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!

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.

When you arrive you pay and then are given a map/pamphlet, which includes an English translation. There are wonderful views. I'd never seen anything so beautiful in South Korea. The views definitely were reminiscent of when we were in Auckland, New Zealand on Waiheke Island....More
