On my tour of the southwest side of Jeju island, we stopped by the beautiful Sanbang temple. It’s nestled in the side of a mountain with an amazing view of the ocean. The whole mountain is the result of volcanic activity. Walking around the temple I was completely in awe of it’s beauty. When you’ve been in Korea long enough, many of the temples blend together and start to look the same. This temple definitely stood out though, not only for it’s amazing location but also for the beautiful artwork and statues inside of it.
There is also a grotto you can climb up to which I’ve heard is very nice. I decided not to go up there though, and instead rested on a bench and admired the view.
