What people are saying:

Kwaneumsa Temple is close to Jeju National University, about 1km from Kwaneumsa Temple to the top of Halla Mountain (the highest mountain in Korea). I have been to Guanyin Temple many times and I always find it peaceful and beautiful. Usually there are not many people here, so you can enjoy a quiet time. We came to this temple just to see Halla Mountain. But in the end I seemed to have a surprise. The temple has a large area, where it can make people feel peaceful and feel temporarily separated from the busy city. What's quiet here. The people here make us feel that it is a very common thing here. The monks here are preparing for the Buddha's birthday. We didn't walk into the building to disturb them and I'm sure we didn't see anything. All in all, this is a beautiful and peaceful little place, far away from other people on Jeju Island.

    A good temple

    It is very near city center although it is difficult to go there if you take public transportation. If you use your own vehicle, you can easily access it. As it is a calm place, you can get healing.

    Quiet and secluded

    We were the only tourists there. It seems this temple is visited more by the locals, and not a typical overseas tourist spot. It was a nice place and we got ourselves plenty of photos. Worth the driv...

    A temple in the mountain trek

    It's 35km drive from Seogwipo district. I don't think it is easily accessible by public transport. I would strongly recommend to explore Jeju with a rental car!
