Lanterns Everywhere...

Bongeunsa Temple is conveniently located in the posh neighbourhood of Gangnam-gu, Seoul. The temple was first established in 794 A.D., by National Teacher, Ven. Yeonhoe. There are quite a few unique features to this large sized temple including the large stone statue of Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha) to the rear of the temple grounds, as well as the beautifully situated and adorned main hall.


Bongeunsa Temple does two types of Temple Stay programs. The first is the more traditional one night and two days program that focuses on a temple tour, a tea ceremony, chanting, mediation, and Buddhist rosary making.


On the other hand, the other program that Bongeunsa Temple conducts is a two and a half hour activity every Thursday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. A number of activities are available such as lotus flower making, mediation, and a tea ceremony. -
