Temple tour

Temple tour is not only visiting the Buddhist temple but experiencing Korean Buddhism and culture. Korean Buddhist temples have been the bedrock on which brilliant Korean culture has been blooming over the past 1700 years since Buddhism was first introduced to Korea. Various Buddhist cultural properties including the structure, architecture, sculpture, art, craft, Buddhist painting and Dancheong (temple paintwork) contain the teachings of Buddha.


Yebool

A day of the temple begins with Yebool. Yebool is a ceremony that we pay respect to the Sakyamuni Buddha, Bodhisattvas and all his diciples. It provides a chance for self-reflection of practice. In the Buddhist chanting, it states that Buddhists take refuge in Buddha, Buddha’s teachings and Shangha (the community of Buddhist monks and nuns), and wish to be Buddah through constant practice. While you are listening to Buddhist chanting, you will feel calm and have a peace of mind.
