Spend the whole day walking and hiking around and to the temple and enjoy stops by the river. Don't miss one of the largest Buddha Statues in Asia that is said to hold two bones from Buddha himself.

The ancient temples and amazing Buddha were fantastic. It is very easy to get here from Daegu on the #1 bus. I highly recommend visiting this site.

It takes only 1 hour from Gunwi. If you looking for an accommodation near Donghwasa, also there's a beautiful hotel near the temple which name is Hotel Emillia they provide suitable room and dining with reasonable price.

You can board the cable car near Donghwasa Temple's entrance. You can see it if you go up the hills by car with 5 minutes.

I'm not really sure about tours at the temple. The Daegu City bus tour does a circuit to the temple and costs only 5000 won. Their tour is only in Korean but the brochure and bus stops have English too.
