Nestled up against the rocky coastline, Haedong Yonggung Temple offers sweeping sea views and a rare example of oceanfront medieval architecture in the country. Originally constructed in 1376, the temple has in the following centuries undergone several periods of restoration and reconstruction. Make your way along the 108 steps to the main part of the sanctuary, and you'll find the path lined with anthropomorphic animal statues representing the signs of the zodiac. Peel off towards the sea to get a panoramic view out over the water from the rocky viewpoint, where you can feel the breeze blowing and hear the waves crashing against the shore. Explore the main portion of the temple and find its numerous nooks and crannies, filled with icons, statues, and artworks dedicated to teachings of the Buddhist faith.

There was spring water, and there were a lot of people who drank it, but it stopped because it was a little hygienic
Llegar hasta el no es facil, a nosotros nos llevo mas de 1h y media desde Jagalchi, ya que solo puedes llegar en bus. El templo esta sobre un acantilado y las vistas son impresionantes.

The temple is on a cliff and the views are breathtaking. It hasn't been a visit for long. If you can only make one, I recommend Beomesa better.
