Busan Temple: Haedong Yonggungsa Temple
From AT Teacher, Alex Mottern: “This is the most beautiful temple I have ever seen. And I can’t wait to go back in Spring via the hike from Haeundae. The beauty of the Haedong Yonggung Temple does not simply come from the massive gold buddha, but from a dragon statue surrounded by miniature people figurines, and the surroundings of the sea and mountain.”
It is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan. Since most temples are found in the mountains, it’s a pretty amazing sight to see this one right next to the ocean.
