We went on a cruise-ship excursion but this was a big disappointment - absolutely mobbed with tourists. After seeing several lovely shrines and temples, this one had no serenity. Just look at pictures and skip the visit! It has been re-built, and definitely felt like it was there just to make money from tourists. The entry has a long path of vendors and stalls selling street food and kitschy souvenirs - perhaps it was because we were there in August, though we did not have this experience at many other holy sites. Definitely not worth the price or time to get there.

Date of experience: August 2016

I saw photos of the temple online and decided to go there. After parking your car you walk through a small market. Once inside the main compound you'll see figures of Chinese zodiac. Steep stair steps take you up to the temple by the see. It was mind-blowing and awesome fun!

A temple by the sea is always something såecial. Just outside the temple area are a lot of streetfood oportunities.

Usually temples are built at higher levels, therefore this one that is at sea level is quite something else.

This temple was so beautiful that it gave me shivers. I have seen many giant temples and pagodas, but this cliff-side temple is the most majestic one so far. The old Korean architecture is just incredible. Remember to drink the cold and refreshing fountain water for good health! Also, they sell silkworms on the way in, so if you want to try something new, go for it!!
