Magok Temple Posted on October 7, 2012October 4, 2012 by Chong Go Sunim This is the back entrance, on the path from the continuing education center I recently returned from a stay near one of the oldest extent temples in Korea, Magok Sa. It’s near Kongju, in South Chung Chong Province, and if you’re nearby, be sure to stop in. This pagoda has a lot of very unique elements, and is believed to have been influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. It was built some time in the 1300’s The two story Dharma Hall of Magok Temple To share this post:ShareFacebookTwitterRedditPrintEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Zen Master Seung Sahn got enlightenment at a small hermitage above Magoksa so it’s a special temple in the Kwan Um School tradition.
Looks nice! We tried to find it one day, but the taxi didn’t want to drive us there and Eunbong didn’t want to walk, so we ended up at Daecheon beach… (not that bad of a trade off!)
Barry, thanks for sharing. Have you visited? When I finally do visit, I’ll see if I can make it up to the hermitage and bow in respect to ZM Seung Sahn.
