We accidently stumbled upon this temple when hiking down from Baegudae peak in the Bukhansan park. It's a fairly big temple with beautiful decorations. It's a long way from the city center but accessible with public transport and a 40min walk or shuttle bus.

It has an excellent view and many different buildings, statue areas, and fountains. It's the best temple in Seoul. It's also at the base of the Baegundae hike on Bukhansan mountain as well as near Ui-dong, a popular mountain area with outdoor restaurants.
