It was gorgeous. Not a great place for strollers. Peaceful and pretty. We would like to go again when it's not so horribly hot.

If you go up Palgonsan (one of the two mountains in Daegu) by either hiking or cable car, you can end up in this temple if you take the main road while going down. It is a nice peaceful and quite big temple, though it is not the most beautiful one in Korea.

Buddhist temple talked away in the mountains of
Daegu ^^.
if you're looking to go outside the city and get out this is a great place to explore get in nature there's a beautiful stream there's a Giant Buddha temple that is almost 20 meters tall and it's not really crowded so you can get good pictures highly recommended go when it's cooler like in spring time or in full so it's not as hot.

Beautiful temple in the Palgong mountain area. Go in the spring for cherry blossom or lanterns around Buddha's birthday. Just stunning for a local Daegu area temple.

Lots of hills. Good for the buns. Really scenic. It was packed on Sunday morning. The structures are amazing. Wanting to go back at night during cherry blossom season.
