Jeondeungsa Temple, Incheon Reviews
This temple's head monk is very progressive and wants buddhism to feel accessible to everyone. I did the temple stay here and I highly reccomend it! A beautiful place
Very peaceful place. I visited this place when i was in Korea
고즈넉한 곳. 그러면서도 역사적 가치가 있는 곳. 성인 입장료는 3000원. 고지되지 않았지만 주차비 2000원. 절 안은 크지 않지만 다양한 보물을 볼 수 있음.
다 좋은데 이 빌어먹을 주차요금 받는 자식들 뵈기시러 죽겠다. 음식이나 기념품 구매할 정내미도 뚝 떨어진다. 아랫 부근에 주차요금내고 올라가니 위에 주차장이 덩그라니 또 있네. 굳이 안걸어올라가도 되는걸 주차요금 받는거에 눈이 벌개져서...
강화도 놀러가면 맛있는것 먹구 소화시킬겸 산책하기 좋은곳.. 공기도 좋구 장독대도 정겹더라..
