Overview

If you are interested in experiencing templestay at one of the most renowned Buddhist temples in the heart of Seoul city, Jogyesa Templestay is an excellent choice.

Located in Jongno, Seoul, Jogyesa Temple is easy to reach and yet offers a sense of serenity of a sacred temple. Jogyesa is the administrative headquarter of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is also one of the main locations for the annual Yeon Deung Hoe (Lotus Lantern Festival in Seoul) held around April~May, luring many tourists.

At Jogyesa, you can hear the sound of a Dharma Drum which is believed to guide the common people on the righteous path. Another highlight of the temple is the pagoda that houses Shakyamuni Buddha’s relics brought by Sri Lankan monk, Ven. Dalmabara. You can get a chance to learn about Korean Buddhism as well at the Central Buddhist Museum.

Jogyesa Templestay's motto is “the real hero is who conquers his own anger and hatred” and thus came the name of the templestay program, “To be a True Hero!”. Take a time to look into yourself with the sounds of the Dharma Drum and the temple bell and learn to be a true hero in your life!
