|One of many waterfalls near Bogyeongsa|
Not far from Pohang are two famous temples, one to the south called Oeosa, which you can read about here. And another to the north, called Bogyeongsa, which is the more popular of the two. I visited it several times while I was living in Pohang and probably the best times to see it are in the fall around the end of October or in the winter, around late December January.
From downtown Pohang, you can catch a bus or drive to Bogyeongsa. The bus takes about an hour and a half, possibly longer if you have to change buses. There will be more info about the buses at the end of this post. When you arrive, you'll find a big parking lot where the bus drops you off which leads into a small town.
