UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Bulguksa Temple

One of Korea's best known temples, Bulguksa is a testimony to both the skills of Silla architects and the depth of Buddhist faith. While most of the wooden buildings have been rebuilt over the centuries, all the stone bridges, stairways and pagodas are original. The temple, originally built in 528 and expanded in 751, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.

Seokguram Grotto

Dating back to the same period as Bulguksa Temple, Seokguram is one of the world's finest Buddhistshrines. Surrounded by bodhisattvas and guardian deities, the serene central statue of Buddha gazes out over the forested hills and across the East Sea to the horizon.
