Average Reviews


Located on the coast of north-eastern Busan, the Haedong Yonggungsa temple is a unique temple to visit due to its location near the sea, as opposed to most temples that are located in the mountains.

The motto of Haedong Yonggungsa temple is “At least one of your wishes will be answered here through your heartful prayers.”

Unfortunately, the temple was destroyed by a fire when the Japanese invaded Korea. Monk Ungang of Tongdo rebuilt theHaedong Yonggungsa temple in the early 1930s.
