Bongeunsa Temple

Bongeunsa became one of Korea’s 14 major temples in 1902. The Buddhist temple is located on the slope of Sudo Mountain in Gangnam-gu, across the street from the COEX Mall. If you’re looking for a peaceful getaway, the temple offers a Temple Stay Program, which allows visitors to experience the life of a monk for a few hours.
