Bongeunsa (봉은사) is a Buddhist temple located in the Samseong-dong area of Gangnam, Seoul. The temple grounds are spread out on a hill and surrounded by trees. As you walk through the grounds, you encounter small stone steps leading you slightly higher up the hill and to the different buildings of the temple. The feeling is that of being in a secluded forest / woods; although, in reality you are bang in the middle of one of the most modern parts of Seoul. The picture of the little tree (which was growing almost horizontally out of the side of the hill) was taken by one of the stone staircases.
