  • You can feel comfort to have meditation here or you can enjoy the scenery
  • This place is very nice and super-sceneric. There are several statues of Lord Buddha with a big one. Temple stay is also possible. During October, some working was going on, in the temple stay building. You can go there or by bus. By taxi, it takes about 40 minutes from EXCO,Daegu and by bus, it takes about 50 minutes to 1 hr.
