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. In the following link you can see pictures of this fire. Another peculiarity of this temple is the huge statue overlooking one of the towers, the Gwanseum-Bosal representing Haesugwaneumsang (해수 관음 입상), which is a stone statue depicting Bodhisattva, the Buddha of Mercy.
