Bongeunsa Temple

Originally constructed in the 10th century, Bongeunsa Temple, once known as Gyeonseongsa Temple, is a popular Buddhist temple in Seoul. Considered the epicenter of the Seon sect of the religion, it is both a living ornament and cultural gem of the city. It is also an important breeding ground for Korean texts, and is where sutras have been translated from Chinese since the 1970’s.

The temple grounds contain several large and smaller structures, including the main Buddha Hall, the Grdhrakuta Hall, the Sutra Hall and famously, the Hall of Selecting Buddha, Unhadang Hall and Bowudang Hall. It also contains a traditional tea house and historic and traditional stupas. In front of the Maitreya Hall stands the tallest stone statue of Maitreya Buddha in the country, at 74.5 feet (23 meters), and if you happen to be there during a holiday, the area is often used for outdoor ceremonies and traditional performances.
