Buddhist Temple Stay
A templestay is a memorable way of learning about theKorean Buddhism as well as the unique characteristics of Korean Buddhist Temples.
Begun in 2002 for visitors to the Soccer World Cup Games, templestays provide lay people with an opportunity to share in and learn about the lives of Buddhist monks and nuns. People generally stay two days or about 24 hours in that they may arrive mid afternoon, stay overnight and depart the following mid to late afternoon.
Costs for the temple stays vary depending on the program (W20,000 to W100,000), but are usually somewhere between W40,000 and W80,000. For more information, visit this templestay website. A group of about 16 temples have an organized system for those who don't speak Korean to receive instructions in English at any time and to easily take part in the program.
Any questions or inquiries regarding the English-oriented Templestay programs in these sites can be referred to the team coordinator at 02-2031-2036. All other general inquiries regarding either individual or group Templestay programs can be made by contacting the Templestay Information Center at 02-2031-2000.
