Yakcheonsa Temple |Jeju Island| 약천사

This is not an old place, it was built in the 1990s. However, the beauty of this temple is unmatched by any that I’ve seen.  It’s also huge. The largest in Jeju boasting a view of orange trees and the ocean. It’s gorgeous and serene. A definite must if you visit the island.

It’s located in the Jungmun Resort area.

Directions and information found: Here

Admission is free.

There are many pictures here but I have even more on Flickr!  Crystal’s Flickr Page

I was mocked  endlessly for this pose.


It was a bit rainy and deserted the day we came. Such a perfect combination to see a temple.sam_1226 sam_1227 sam_1230 sam_1231 sam_1233 sam_1236 sam_1239 sam_1240 sam_1242 sam_1247 sam_1251 sam_1252 sam_1254B sam_1258 sam_1265 sam_1271 sam_1272 sam_1274 sam_1275 sam_1276 sam_1279

    I love these photos. I really miss the colours and intricate carvings of Asia, and you’ve captured them perfectly.

    Great photos. I am writing a book about the significant Buddhist temple of Korea and would like to include a section about Yakcheon-sa. I seek permission to use four of your photos in the book, which will be available for printing costs only. In other words, I seek no profit for the book. Rather, I want to encourage people to visit these magnificent temples for themselves. Thanks for your consideration.
