Temple Stay in the Heart of Seoul

[Korea] Experience Korean Buddhist Culture in the Heart of Seoul!

The Templestay Information Center, located in Jongno-gu, Seoul, is running a special program called “Experience Korean Buddhism Culture” once a month from September to December, 2014.

Participants don’t need to travel far to be able to see and experience Korean Buddhist and temple culture in Seoul. Programs include learning to use the moktak (a wooden percussion instrument used by Buddhists while chanting), making lotus lanterns, tea-talk with monks, writing letters to yourself, and sampling temple food. All these activities will have English and Japanese language support for the convenience of international visitors.

In order to take part in the program, registration via email or phone is required, and the participation fee is 30,000 won per person.
