Beautiful and tranquil temple area, with a famous pagoda and various other historic artifacts. Very much still in use, so please be modest to allow everyone to celebrate their traditions and beliefs.

Easy to get to on bus 11 or 150 from town, this small stone temple is plain and quiet. Only two stories remain and worth a brief look if you have time. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

There are only a few things to see here, but the entrance fee is only ₩1300, so it's well worth a visit if you are passing through the area.

This is a small compound with the most prominent item being the part of the pagoda (3 levels at the base standing, out of possible 7 or 9 levels based on the width of the base). You can see this as a part of the...More

The temple is not as grand as Bulguksa so it is not as crowded as Bulguksa. Still, it is no harm for you to visit if you have extra time in Gyeongju. It is a historical site and the entrance fee is quite cheap.

Bunhwangsa is just 20-30min walk from the museum and shows a beautiful central temple remainder. Next to it is a small buddhist temple which you'll be able to enter - typical very relaxed atmosphere in there.

The pagoda here is nice and the hall that remains has a good statue in it, but, in all honesty, it is not worth the price or the journey. I run a website dedicated to temples and I visited the temple so as to have...More

The main temple is impressive and worth the visit if you are in to temples. It is set in a preservation area and the views are amazing.

This temple is famous for the stone pagoda although it only has three of its previous nine stories. The base is pretty big so when it was nine stories it must have been very impressive. I hope the government gets around to restoring it. The...More

I was a bit disappointed about Bungwangsa. This temple was small - the pagoda was renovating. Entrance ticket was KRW 3000 - dearer than Anaji Pond.
