Templestay Information Center

Whether you're interested in getting a feeling of what Templestay is all about, want to get a little taste before you actually sign up, or are just trying to figure out which temple would be best for you, the Templestay Information Center is here to answer all your questions.

The Templestay Information Center is housed in a five story building directly across the street from Jogyesa Temple in Seoul. This building houses the main Templestay offices, Information Center, Education Center, a traditional temple restaurant called "Balwoo Gongyang", the Lotus Cafe, a Buddhist bookstore, and so on.

On the first floor is the Templestay Information Center, which handles all general information concerning our programs. Here you can pick up pamphlets and other brochures about our programs, as well as get answers to your questions. On the third floor is the Education Center, which has facilities for both seated programs and open rooms for other activities. On the fourth floor are the main Templestay offices.

The fifth floor houses a restaurant called "Balwoo Gongyang", specializing in traditional temple food, where you can taste for yourself the carefully prepared dishes, handmade by Buddhist practitioners. Choose whatever course you want, and food that can normally only be tasted in temples will be served.
