I'll start off with the templestay experience and then talk about the temple itself. We had gone there in the middle of winter, January to be exact. There were 3 other foreigners including the 2 of us in the group. While there were aspects of it that were interesting, it was not what we really expected. The program included bead... More

We visited the temples while in Pyongyang for a break from the slopes and it was so beautiful! We had 2 adults and 3 kids including a teenager and it cost 13,000 won (<$13 US)- the booth attendant spoke some English. The buildings are so colorful and fascinating, pretty against a snowy backdrop, and the sound of someone chanting in... More

The temple is in the heart of the Odea-san National Park and a gem of a visit. I've lived in Korea three times over the past 15 years and can't find a better temple (besides Haein-sa) with amazing scener, a variety of hermitages, and great hiking. The restaurants on the outskirts of the park are amazing. Do yourself a favor,... More

There's a lot of down time), the food was beautiful and waking up at 4.20am (not compulsory) to pray with the monks of the temple was something I will... More

Not a bad place to visit, surrounding scenery was great but do not expect amazing temple buildings. Nonetheless, it's a calm place with beautiful surroundings.

Journey to Woljeongsa itself is breathtaking, surrounded by mountains and fresh air. Buddhism has lots of influence in the korean culture and one finds serenity and peace here. Am definitely coming back for a temple stay.
