This was a last minute visit, but I'm glad I went. Colourful lanterns were up ready for Buddha's birthday celebration, and although it was raining, it was very peaceful. There are a lot of different temples to see, and it's quite a high climb up. Definitely worth it if you're in Hadong. Quite easy to get to if you're near the Hadong bus station (not terminal - station. Number 11 from Hadong Bus Terminal).

The temple is located on the southern slopes of Chirisan, surrounded by tea fields. Near the parking area is a Tea centre and Museum where you can learn more about green tea and try some as well. In Spring, the cherry trees along the road from Hwagae up to the temple (6km) are very beautiful and make a nice walk - on a week day, as the area turns into a traffic jam over the week end. It is VERY popular. If you have more time, make the 4 hour-round trip hike to Buri falls.

Ssanggyesa Temple Ssanggyesa Temple in Hadong is located on the southern part of Jirisan National Park. It is said that the best time to visit here is spring since you can make a walk starting from Hwagae market place to Ssanggyesa Temple~ The pathway is filled with #Cherryblossom trees. Come and make a visit before the petals of the beautiful trees all fall~^^

The temple is located in the Hwagye-dong Valley of Hwagae-myeon, Hadong County, Gyeongsangnam-do province. It was founded in 722 but the temple was re-built in the 17th century. Nevertheless it looked a lot older than most other temples that I have seen. There were many tourists but unfortunately not many flowers. There were a few tall cherry blossom trees at the rear of the temple. I went there as part of a day tour to Hwagae cherry blossom festival.

This was a good experience to visit this temple as I’m Indonesian. According to some articles, The best time to visit this area is spring as I have just visited this temple in the early autumn. The original temple buildings were all destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (1592-1598), with the current buildings having been erected in 1632.

We need to walk some distance as we didn't drive. However, it was a nice pleasant walk. This is an old Korea temple with quiet atmosphere in a secluded site.

We visited this temple as part of the itinerary to see cherry blossoms at Hwagae. We need to walk some distance as we didn't drive. However, it was a nice pleasant walk.

This is an old Korea temple with quiet atmosphere in a secluded site. As we were there in the evening, we managed to see and hear the prayers in drum by the monks.

The temple is very serene and peaceful. When I went, there were hardly any people, mostly just the monks climbing the hill to meditate. The surrounding area grows a lot of tea and has a lot of history surrounding it. http://oldmountain.yolasite.com/tea-travels/ssanggyesa-temple-and-the-first-korean-tea-plantations
