Four More Temples around Pyeongtaek

About Buddhist History in Korea

Korea has a long and rich Buddhist history and is home to nearly a thousand temples. There are so many temples in Korea that I am constantly discovering more and more temples. Each temple compound is beautifully unique and offers a quiet refuge to meditate or seek peace of mind.
