Haedong Yonggungsa

This is a temple that I’ve been wanting to visit for the longest time and as you can see from the photos, it didn’t disappoint! IMG_8846

It is a beautiful temple in Busan that is situated on some rocks along the ocean.IMG_8836

We visited it on Childrens day, which probably wasn’t the best time to visit as there were so many people there!IMG_8838

IMG_8834It is also 3 weeks until Buddahs birthday so they were beginning to decorate the temple for this festive event. Which meant that there were metal bars and rope everywhere. (It made taking photos pretty difficult)

The best time to visit this temple is probably around Buddahs Birthday as the temple is decorated with thousands of lanterns that light up at night. I have seen some photos and it looks so beautiful!

It is free to enter the temple and it is only 2,000w for parking nearby. There are tons of food and souvenir stalls that you’d be forgiven for thinking that you were in South East Asia!IMG_8804

Inside the temple there are many cute little Buddha statues.IMG_8822

IMG_8831There are also some beautiful stone figures, a stone pagoda and a beautiful gold Buddha.IMG_8810

IMG_8815IMG_8856It is a beautiful temple and well worth the visit.IMG_8842

IMG_8867IMG_8853We drove there but you can take a taxi there from Haeundae beach for about 5,000w.

It is very near Songjeong beach which is one of my favourites in Busan so afterwards we took a stroll along the beach and enjoyed some delicious pancakes!

It was such a lovely day and I got to tick another thing off of my Korean Bucket List!
