Bongeunsa is a Buddhist temple in Gangnam-gu and was founded in
794 AD by Yeon-hoe, the highest-ranking monk of Silla at the time.
The temple was reconstructed in 1498 and became the main temple of
the Korean Seon (Zen) sect of Buddhism. Today Bongeunsa is a
flourishing complex offering a 'Temple Stay Program' where visitors
can live as monks do for a few hours.
