Yakcheonsa Temple, largest Buddhist Temple in East Asia, located in southern area of Jeju.





To reach the temple, we have to climb very steep stairs. Shoes are also removed upon entering the temple proper.

As seen in Korean dramas, there is this water container that is believed to be miracle water that will make your health condition better.

While looking at the Buddha inside, simply turnaround and you'll see the horizon and sea at the background – picturesque!
