Seoul Jogeysa Temple

Jogyesa Temple is located in the Jongno District of Seoul in South Korea and serves as the chief temple of the largest sect of Korean Buddhism. Jogyesa Temple is famous for its central location within Seoul, offering a unique experience to travelers looking for a peaceful oasis in the bustling city.
Inside Jogyesa Temple is covered in beautiful lanterns of all colors, and each June the temple hosts Buddha’s birthday celebration, sometimes called the Lotus Lantern Festival, when additional paper lanterns adorn the entire complex. With or without the extra decorations, visiting Jogyesa Temple is a peaceful and calming experience that is worth a visit any time of year.
