Naksansa Temple, Yangyang-gun

Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
One of the eight greatest scenic areas in the east of Korea, Naksansa Temple has served for centuries as a place of prayer and meditation in pristine natural surroundings. Situated on top of the mountain of the same name, it was built thanks to a Buddhist monk who, after a several days’ meditation, claimed he had seen a goddess who told him to erect a temple there. The spot where he used to meditate now houses a pavilion. Take a walk around the temple and enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline.
