It is relatively easy to get here from Haendae Beach. We took a 25min bus ride (Bus 100) from outside our hotel Novotel Ambassador Haeundae to the Fisheries building outside the temple. It was then a 10-15min walk from the main road to the temple....More

This is a beautiful area to spend the morning or afternoon just walking around and taking pictures. Very relaxing.

A nice temple on a small hill. It was autumn and my toddler loved walking on the fallen leaves. As for the 1 hour transit tour: It's 20 minutes to and from the airport. You'll have 15-20 minutes to spend here. Recommended for short layovers.

It's a small temple surrounded by trees on the top of a small hill. We went there at about 7:30am so it's very fresh, quiet and relax. We visited it in about 15 minutes. There is not much to see but still much better than...More

Can't complain it's free and it is a small little temple near the airport. Worthwhile if you have a few hours to spare and Beats seating in a terminal waiting

This is a small temple near Incheon International Airport. We joined the Korean Free Transit Tour while waiting for our connecting fly. The temple consists of various buildings such as Gwaneumjeon (re-constructed by Heungseon Daewongun), Yosachae (home of the monks), Chilseonggak, and Yonghwanggak. In Yosachae,...More

Cute little place in the hills with a solemn atmosphere. The monks were there and also a few people chanting. Very surreal. Wish there was more time but the tour allowed for only 10 minutes stay.

Came here for an hour tour from a long layover in the airport. Place is very quiet and solemn. Perfect place to meditate as it is located in the mountains and away from the metropolitan. It also has the 1,300 year old Zelcova Tree! I...More
