Seonamsa Temple

A historic temple built nearly 1,200 years ago, Seonamsa is treasured for its beautiful wooded road and rainbow-shaped Seungseongyo Bridge.

In order to minimize the temple’s impact on the environment and blend in better with the trees, the temple was built in three separate sections of the forest instead of being intergrated into one large building.

The wooded path that weaves throughout the temple grounds is truly breathtaking, with rare pine trees over 200 years old growing almost horizontally.

Located just around the corner from the temple is a wild green tea field along with a tea center housed in a tracitional hanok where visitors can learn proper green tea drinking etiquette.
