Located at the foot of the Jirisan Mountain, Hwaeomsa Temple is a perfect place for you to take a look at Korea’s cultural relics that the government has considered as “national treasures”. Having a long history, this temple is a right spot to delve deeper into Korea’s rich culture, traditions, and history, as well as Buddha’s teachings. For your information, during the Japanese invasion from 1592 to 1598, while every temple was annihilated, only some relics that are now considered as “national treasures” were not damaged, which can be found in this very temple. Interesting, right?
