Many of the temples we have viewed in South Korea have been very similar in design so I try to look for things that set them apart from the others. This one had a few features we really liked. For starters the gate you drive through to get to the parking lot is huge with 4 large guardians posted. The temple itself has dragons lining all of the staircases and there are a few large stone lanterns.
The real highlight is the giant Buddha statue. You have to go through the small gate house, down some stairs and over a bridge to get to it. Follow the path and climb the temple stairs and you will arrive in a courtyard full of stone pagodas, statues, and the Buddha.
