I'm not religious or anything, but this place made me feel pretty calm and peaceful. There's a temple themed cafe on the way up!

Our group did have several children which made it a bit difficult to concentrate, and as our group was mainly Korean, all English speakers were given small headsets for a translator to talk through.

Amazing temple surrounded by gardens and other buildings. We visited in September when the weather was lovely and enjoyed walking around the grounds. Traditional Korean site. Not crowded. Lovely coffee house on the grounds where we stopped afterward.

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.

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.
