This impressive temple offers travelers an up close look at traditional religious architecture amid the stuffing backdrop of mountains and shoreline. Built in 1376 by a famed Buddhist teacher, Yonggungsa Temple is a rare gem in the landscape of South Korea.

Travelers can wander the grounds and explore its structures—which include a sanctuary that was reconstructed in the 1970s. Brilliant colors and a three-story pagoda decorated with hand-carved lions are hallmarks of this traditional sanctum. A tower of 108 stairs and several stone lanterns guide visitors to remarkable views and the meditative sound of waves.
