  1. I am looking for an English speaking Nunnery which can accommodate me for short stays and eventually prepare me a monastic life.

    I would appreciate your advise / recommendations .

    • Hello Jenny, I received your email and have sent you a private reply. I hope it helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free in contacting me.

  2. Hello,
    can you please give list of temples which can be visited in half-a-day to a day from Seoul in the order of their ratings?

    • The top temple I would suggest in Seoul is Bongeunsa Temple in Gangnam. The second temple I would recommend would be Jogyesa Temple, which is in the centre of Seoul. The third would be Myogaksa Temple, which is located at teh base of Mt. Naksan and gives great views of Seoul below. Those would be my top three. Hope that helps.

  3. I notice that there are no temples here from Gyeonggi-do (unless I missed them completely). Is there a reason for that? I know there are quite a few splendid ones in that province. Perhaps you just haven’t got around to them yet?

    • Because I live near Busan, it’s not that easy to get up to Gyeonggi-do or Gangwon-do. However, this summer vacation I made it up to Gangwon-do. So stay tuned, and I’ll have some up like Woljeongsa and Sinheungsa.
