Video: Sowonsa Temple – 소원사 (Gijang, Busan)

Hello Again Everyone!!

Sowonsa Temple, which is located in eastern part of Busan in Gijang. The temple was first built in 1950. The temple was purportedly built on the grounds where the famed monk, Wonhyo-daesa (617-686), once prayed. Sowonsa Temple means “Wish Temple,” in English. It’s definitely one of the more eccentric temples you’ll visit in Korea with a cluster of shrine halls, Koi ponds, and a large artificial pond to the rear of the grounds with a golden Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) overlooking the water.

So enjoy the video and enjoy this rather peculiar temple in the second largest city of Korea: Busan. Enjoy!
