Unlike most mountain-side temples in Korea Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is located on the seaside. This temple was originally built in 1376 and then reconstructed in 1970 using all the colors that were traditionally used in the structure. The birth of Buddha celebrated in April – May (following the lunar calendar) offers spectacular night time views as the temple area surrounded with lit lanterns.
Jagalchi Market is Korea’s largest seafood market where you can observe so many types of fresh seafood. Every year in October the Jagalchi Fish Festival is held here where you can take part in a contest and catch some fish in a huge aquarium with your bare hands.
