Know more about Jogye Temple:

Established in 1910, Jogyesa Temple serves as the center of Zen Buddhism in South Korea. Highlights of the temple complex include Daeungjeon, Seoul’s largest Buddhist shrine, as well as a garden area with a white pine tree that is more than 500 years old. In 1937, it was moved to its current location where it was reconstructed. Construction was completed on October 25, 1938. At this time, the temple was known as Taegosa. This was during the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910-1945). The name stayed the same until 1954.

Visitors here will be surprised to find a beautiful setting and sense of calmness in the middle of the hectic and crowded city. The grounds are a great escape from the big city for both locals and tourists. Some of the nature that is not to be missed include a rare 500-year-old Baeksong lacebark pine tree and a 450-year-old Chinese scholar tree.

The Baeksong tree that surrounds the temple has been given the status of a national treasure. The temple is an active religious place and it holds rituals and ceremonies periodically. It is particularly beautiful in the evening when it is illuminated by lamps by the monks. Outside, there are shops selling Buddhist trinkets.
