The temple is not very big, you can finish watching it soon, you can listen to the commentary, but it is only in Korean, but after listening to it, you will be rewarded. The commentary time is 10 o'clock, 11 o'clock, 1 o'clock in the afternoon, 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock, and 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The commentary of many attractions in Gyeongju is at this time, so if you want to listen to the commentary, you can plan your itinerary according to the time. There will be cases near the ticket office, where there will be narrators, there will also be Korean pamphlets and pamphlets in Korean, which can be stamped, basically including all the historical attractions of Gyeongju. The commentary at Fenhuang Temple is about half an hour, and there will be people worshiping Buddha inside, so you can feel the atmosphere. After I came out, the Huanglong Temple was across the street. Due to the previous Mongolian invasion, it was burned down. Now there is only the ruins. It’s good to take a walk and experience it. Because it was cloudy that day, it was particularly sensational. I could feel a lot of natural things, such as dragonflies, dew, butterflies, and gypsophila. Sometimes in Gyeongju, many natural things make people feel really comfortable.
Binhwangsa Temple was built in 634 by Queen Sundeok of Silla. It was very famous at that time. Many famous monks and painters wrote books and painted Buddhist paintings here. The eminent monks Yuan Xiao and Ji Zang also lived here. The Buddha paintings painted and the Buddha statues made after the Imjin Japanese Rebellion were lost after many wars, and what remains in the Fenhwangsa Temple is the Pagoda of Fenhwangsa, the national treasure No. 30. The pagoda was built by polishing the stones into bricks. Originally, it had nine floors, but now there are only three floors. It provides valuable information for understanding the development history of the Silla Stone Pagoda culture.
The temples in the northeastern region used to be about the same size as they are now. The surrounding environment is relatively ordinary and parking is possible. The parking lot is large and easy to find. It is more comfortable to ride a bicycle. Tickets are required to enter, but they are very cheap.
Binhwangsa Temple is located in the Gyeongju site area of Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea. It was first built three years ago by Queen Seondeok of Silla. Like Hwangryongsa, it is a national temple, but it is luckier than Hwangryongsa in that it has not been completely leveled. It was destroyed during the Imjin Japanese Rebellion and the Mongolian invasion, and the cultural relics were all lost, but the overall framework of the temple is still here. From Huanglong Temple all the way to the north, you can come to Fenhuang Temple. The outside is basically barren land, and occasionally a car will pass by and it will be dusty. There is a ticket to go inside. It is not very special. It takes about half an hour to walk. The most important thing is the stone tower inside. There are three floors. The stone lion below has a certain history, but unfortunately only one is. The original thing, there is a bell that can be knocked down, the whole area will hear the sound of this bell, and this empty area is extraordinarily clear. Although the place is not big, there are supporting toilets, which is quite humane. There is only one place where you can worship Buddha. It feels a bit bleak at sunset.
It is recommended to visit Gyeongju Museum. You can walk to Fenhuang Temple. There are special trails for walking. Not far, 1.3 kilometers. Very comfortable. A few pictures
