Jogyesa Temple


Jogyesa Temple is situated opposite the Temple Stay Information Center and is one of the most popular temples in Seoul, as it is the heart of Zen Buddhism in Korea. Surrounded by beautiful trees, especially acacias , The main temple building is about 500 years old and the Daeungjeon building is a huge temple that was constructed in the year 1938. Jogyesa became famous in December of 1998 because a large number of the Jogye Order monks occupied the temple during quarantine days in a power struggle, and police had to get involved to prevent a riot from happening.
