Jikjisa Temple, located at the foot of Hwangaksan Mountain in Gimcheon, Gyeongsangbuk-do, is in perfect harmony with the nearby valley and pine forest. Jikjisa offers Experiential Temple Stay or “Looking straight into your heart”, which you will have a chance to experience the traditional Korean culture and Buddhist monks’ lifestyle.
The program proceeds with various schedules such as Buddhist chanting ceremonies, meditation and hiking to the small temple together with the monk and making 108 prayer beads. Another program is Resting-Style Temple Stay or “Tranquil Temple Stay for Relaxation”. This program has no fixed schedule except three meals and three chanting times a day.
