S.Korea, Busan 부산, Haedong Yonggunsa Temple해동 용궁사

Haedong Yonngunsa Temple, Haeundae Station, transfer Bus NO. 181. Alternatively which is recommended, take a cab from the station, it takes about 10-15mins and does not cost much.

The temple is the only temple that was built by the sea on coastal rock overlooking the sea. Unlike those temples built in the mountains in other parts of the Korea.  This temple is relatively small, but the view is exceptional. Over looking the sea, the sounds of the waves seems to have some calming effect, completely different from temples built in the mountain.
