See the giant Buddha statue, reaching almost 20 m 65 (ft) tall, at Donghwasa. Take a cable car ride surrounded by mesmerizing misty hills, or some easily accessible public transport options, to reach the temple. If you're feeling adventurous, try hiking to the site, enjoying the area's pristine nature and lush greenery alon g the way. At the temple, appreciate the ornate pagodas, the main temple, and the stairs shaped like a dragon. Relax by the lake and listen to the sounds of the waterfall, then refresh at the coffee shop near the entrance. The complex offers temple-stay programs, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the Zen vibe and explore your spiritual side.

  • I'd like to introduce the Donghwasah Buddhist Temple instead of the Gyesahn Catholic Church in Daegu because people who read my review from Occidental countries know more things about Christianity...

  • Love it from the begging to the end! One of the peaceful places I ever been. Forest, temple, status, lantern, cascade~ evrrything! I enjoyed so much! Prepare your camera and a confy shoes, you will enjoy the architecture and the nature at the same time!
  • While chasing the dying, everywhere lacks energy; everything is muddled; everyone is confused. Especially me, all senses are closed here. I wouldn't meditate. Why did I come for this?
