Busan Destinations: The Magical Haedong Yonggungsa Temple

Yonggungsa was founded in 1376 during the reign of Goryeo Dynasty of Korea. During the period of Uwang dynasty the great Buddhist preacher Naong founded this temple on the seashore. The temple was restored in 1970.

Thousands of tourists, as well as pilgrims from different parts of the country, come to visit Busan Haedong Yonggungsa Temple.

The temple is located on top of a huge rock erected from the ocean. The scenic beauty of the place along with the architectural beauty of the temple makes it a fascinating place where you would always like to come back.

The sound of the East Sea ocean waves and the melody of sutra chanting from the temple create a magical effect.
