  • Big, bronze buddha statue is placed in top of the temple. Basically, it is good place for meditation. But there are few building (temple '전각') comparing to its vast occupying ground area. I recommend you to visit in Spring because there are plenty of cherry blossom trees, forsythia bushes. Other seasons are also good to enjoy the nature :) Free parking lot is available.
  • This was a beautiful and fun way to spend a few hours with the family. This temple is about a 40 minute drive from Pyeongtaek. You can take a short stroll or take a longer walk/hike on some of the trails. Then you can replenish all the calories by stopping at one of the quaint restaurants in the town. The pictures speak for themselves. R U Unlimited?
