Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very beautiful location, unfortunately too crowded exactly because of this. Crowds galore waiting for their turn at the cable car, and lots of people disrespectful by not keeping quiet. Lots of nice trails from here. Was really beautiful with the autumn foliage.

We had a great time exploring the Temple complex - met a wonderful, funny monk, who shared photos of local waterfalls we couldn't get to due to typhoon coming! Great for photographers!

Really a beautiful Place!

The nature around is really beautiful and the temple run itself is also a real beauty.

On weekends it could be quite crowded

A beautiful temple set in the base of a mountain surrounded by nature. An excellent day trip for temple enthusiasts or just those looking for a relaxing adventure at a glimpse into culture.

not been inside so I can not comment on that but the temple is located at the start of hiking paths and has a little coffee bar closely.

The temple is in the upper part and middle of the park. It is well crafted and made of wood. The design both externally and inside is intricate and detailed with dragons, praying priest illustrations and symbols. Inside there was an ongoing monk praying hence we just peered and observed the prayers. A good place for meditation and prayers.

A lovely natural location which is so peaceful and perfect for self reflection and medidation. There is a large figurine of Buddha, and devotees could purchase jossticks for prayers.

The temple complex is comprised of a number of buildings, each in the traditional style. Beautifully decorated, they are well worth the pilgrimage for the faithful or just the culturally curious. Admire the huge bell or drink from the temple fountain. You can add a personal touch by buying a roof tile with your own message inscribed on top (NT10,000).

This temple is situated right close to the entrance of Seoraksan National Park and is definitely worth a visit. The road to the temple is an easy, accessible walk. On the way to the temple, you'll see a very big buddha statue. The temple is beautiful in itself, but the location, surrounded by the natural beauty of Seoraksan National Park is what makes it unforgettable-.

I visited this place while hiking to Ulsanbawi Rock. The temple is only a 10 mins walk from the entrance of Seoraksan Park. On the way to Sinheungsa, there is a great bronze Buddha statue. The temple compound consists of a few buildings, with its typical Korean architecture. It was rather quiet with a few visitors. I took some photos before moving on.
