  • A temple located on Cheonggyesan. Founded in 7c by Kingdom of Shilla, and became a big temple in 1284 by Kingdom of Goryeo. Became very famous in 2000, when they found Buddhism's legendary flower udumbara in the temple. They offer free lunch during 12:00~13:00 for poor travelers. However, nowadays it's purpose is to prevent hikers throwing trashed in the mountain to have lunch. There is a lying Buddha on the right side of the temple, where you can find a way to the peak of the Chunggyesan next to the Buddha. There is a parkinglot in front of the temple but there aren't many. There are two buses connects the temple and Indeogwon station. However, it still takes 15mins from bus stop to the temple, where they also have the big parkinglot. The pass between them has nice views and facilities.
