Founded in 553 A.D, Beopjusa Temple has lit up its Dharma Lantern for 1500 years. With its long history and the possession of numerous cultural assets including 3 national treasures and 12 addition national treasures, it is often referred to as the living outdoor museum. While doing a temple tour, you can not only learn about Beopjusa Temple but also have a good understanding of Korean history, culture and Buddhism.

Yebul (Buddhist Ceremony)

Twice a day at Korean temples, during the early morning and evening, people pay their respects and make offerings to Buddha through a special ceremony called Yebul. The ceremony begins with the playing of the four Buddhist instruments: the Dharma drum, temple bell, wooden fish, and cloud-shaped gong.
