Located very close to the COEX mall, this temple is one branch of the main Chogyesa Temple downtown. Founded in 794 in the Silla Kingdom, it has a very long history indeed. A unique feature of the temple is that it has 3,479 plates containing 13 different sutras. Visitors should also be sure to examine the wooden nameplate hanging under the eaves of the temple. The calligraphy was written by one of the greatest Korean masters, Chusa Kim Jeong-hui.
Check out a GIANT Buddha statue inside. The place is fantastic. Check out how serene and calm it is inside the temple premises in spite of being right in the centre of the city.
You can also check out the Temple lanterns, They're really nice; I was unfortunate to see them in the evening, when they're lit.
