Situated inside a small fort on a hill, the temple complex consists of a number of small halls in a serene wooded setting. There are some beautifully manicured trees around and I understand they also have accommodations for people wanting to stay for awhile. There...More

The temple is uphill and quiet. If you are looking for a place to get away from noise and city headache then this place is highly recommended. I joined the temple stay program at Jeondeungsa temple which included 2 days and 1 night. It was...More

This temple is a wonder. You enter the real Korean spirit with typical buildings, well decorated in a sober but wonderful way. The entrance is free as almost everywhere in Korea!

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!

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.
