jogyesa temple tree

Jogyesa is a Buddhist temple located in downtown Seoul. For locals it is a place of worship and a symbol of Korean Buddhism. For tourists it is a conveniently located temple that’s easy to visit. There are also a variety of stores located around the grounds that specialize in Buddhist items. The main hall (as in the picture) with that rare 500 year old lacebark pine tree in front make a beautiful sight. The temple site is relatively compact, meaning a leisurely stroll is all you need to have a pleasant experience indeed.
