This is really nice place! Also, I would reccomend to go there in the evening, when it's dark outside. Even though working monks told us, that we are here at bad time (it was getting dark), I think completely otherwise. Because when it gets dark, they have really beautiful lights on, so temple looks magical!

Just a normal temple to me, which tour guide told us there is around 10k of budda statue in the temple itself. A place for Buddhist to visit and pray.

We were spoiled as it was Buddha's birthday and the Lotus Lantern Festival - the temple looked marvellous with all the lanterns hanging there and it's a beautiful site overlooking the water. All very peaceful and idyllic.

It was great to visit the temple while it was decorated with thousands of colorful lanterns to commerate the birthday of Budda. I don't know if the review would be as good if it was during the year. A lovely temple that was made awesome because to the lanterns.

This temple is a jewel of jeju island. Very nicely preserved with very good painting at the roof and also the wall on the second and third floor of the main temple.

Great temple to visit if you're interested in contemporary buddhism. I've been to temples all over Asia and this was the first one i stumbled across still in use by modern day buddhists. It was truly marvelous to see how they worship and use their worship space.
