Can't complain it's free and it is a small little temple near the airport. Worthwhile if you have a few hours to spare and Beats seating in a terminal waiting

I had a 12 hr lay over in Incheon Airport and decided to take their free transit tour and it went Amazing! It's free and totally a wonderful experience. The temple was peaceful, very neat.

My family and I had a 5 hour layover at Incheon. We discovered the Korean Transit Tours (which are free and very in variety and length). Since we were limited on time we took the 1 hour tour to Yonggungsa Temple in Incheon. TIP: you should sign up in advance to get on these tours, can do so via web).... More

This is a small temple near Incheon International Airport. We joined the Korean Free Transit Tour while waiting for our connecting fly. The temple consists of various buildings such as Gwaneumjeon (re-constructed by Heungseon Daewongun), Yosachae (home of the monks), Chilseonggak, and Yonghwanggak. In Yosachae, the writings of Heungseon Daewongun are hung on the wall and recently, an 11 meter-high... More

Cute little place in the hills with a solemn atmosphere. The monks were there and also a few people chanting. Very surreal. Wish there was more time but the tour allowed for only 10 minutes stay.

Came here for an hour tour from a long layover in the airport. Place is very quiet and solemn. Perfect place to meditate as it is located in the mountains and away from the metropolitan. It also has the 1,300 year old Zelcova Tree! I bought a bracelet for $10, pretty pricey but worth it. Will definitely come back.

C1 ( 2013.06.03 ) There was a small and quiet temple. There was an old ginkgo tree and the Big Buddha. With the exception of these, There was nothing very unusual. The quiet is a good place to take a walk. Passing on the road is also good to visit, I do not want to recommend it go.
