What you'll do

We will start the tour at the front gate, where 4 monsters are protecting the temple. Each monster is guarding the 4 directions, north and south, east and west. And then dozens buildings are waiting to watch. Each building has a unique name and meaning. One of the beautiful places to enjoy the oriental religion and thinking. Also, Korean history is deeply embedded in the temple, the culture, war, idea and so on. Finally, you can experience the night view of the temple and its around, the very centre of Seoul.

For the last 10 years, I have played a role of a tour guide in Seoul, having a professional license, issued by Korean government. From culture to economy, history and many other subjects, I can communicate with you. Since Seoul is getting globalized, more and more people from outside are coming here to enjoy and experience. I am happy to help you finding more about Seoul. Thanks.

It was a wonderful stroll into the ancient temples of Gangnam! It was a very instructive tour and I got a great time chatting with my host. His story telling skills and his care for me were his greatest strengths!
