Naksansa or Naksan Temple

Naksan Temple or Naksansa (-sa means temple in Korean) is a Buddhist temple and one of the most beautiful temples in South Korea as it has a unique location on top of a mountain and overlooking the Sea of ​​Japan. It was built in 671 but, in 2005 suffered a fire from which it is still recovering. Many of the buildings have already been restored, though they still have to build pavilions.
