Persimmon Silence | Cheongdo Daejeoksa

title temple

The Gam Wine Tunnel was an interesting experience. The tunnel was unique. The wine was crisp. And, it was also very grating on my sensitive nerves because of the overabundance of attendees. Lucky for us that just up the hill a bit sat a quaint (and calm) little temple surrounded by persimmon trees and golden silence.

Most temples in Korea look very similar but I was so grateful for this one because of the chaos that reigned just 200 meters away. Enjoy the pictures and feel the silence. ๐Ÿ™‚

We took a train from Dongdaegu Station in Daegu to the Cheongdo Station. From there we took a cab. Itโ€™s very popular and its in Konglish so you can tell the cabbie โ€œWine Tunnel.โ€

To get to the temple, just follow the signs past the wine tunnel.
