I chose to do the "free-style" relaxing 1 night/2days templestay in this temple. You can also do longer ones and more organised ones. The temple ground area is quite big and lies on a tree covered hill which is great for walks or quiet contemplation. The place is quite busy with visitors during the day, but quiets down after 6pm.... More

One must go for it. It is one of the Korean traditional cultural places. It has a garden as well where you will find various colorful flowers and trees. Very nominal entrance fee.

We visited this temple during our transit in Incheon. The temple was OK; I probably wouldn't have visited it if not for the free tour.

During winter, we have visit this nice and typical place in Incheon. The entire area was covert by snow. Many spirits inside. The paints around roofs are awesome.

The temple is 2 hours driving from Seoul, nevertheless if you have spare time to visit the island it is a good half day tour, as you can combine with Gwangseongbo and a god BBQ lunch close by. The temple itself is very nice and not that crowded, what makes it good for relax and good pictures.

Big temple, quiet. Take the bus 2 from terminal bus of Ganghwa. Stop at the middle of the road ( you can say Jeongdeungsa to the bus driver) and enter by the south gate. Unfortunately, we missed the bus stop and we enter by the east gate: not so easy !! You have to climb the road. To return to... More

This temple is close to the city of Incheon. It's quiet and pleasant and pretty. The food is delicious! A visit to Jeondeungsa is a great way to spend a weekend.

C1 ( 2013.06.03 ) There was a old temple with beautiful landscape. This temple was not big, not small, and had history about 1,300 years old. The overall shape and appearance was not unusual, but main sanctum was unique. Modern form of internal facilities andmModern paintings on the wall was interesting. If you want to feel the atmosphere of a... More
