  • Information
    Introduction
    Unmunsa Temple in Cheongdo, Gyeongsangbuk-do belongs to Cheongdo-gun in terms of administrative district. However, it is actually more closely connected to Daegu in terms of traffic and lifestyle. Unmunsa Temple was built in 560 during the Silla period. This ancient temple features seven treasured artifacts including the Weeping Pine Tree (Natural Monument no. 180) and stone lantern. There are four small hermitages (Sariam, Naewonam, Bukdaeam and Cheongsinam) around the temple. Moreover, the surrounding forest of pine and fir trees only enhances the temple’s beauty.

    Unmunsa is the largest Buddhist nunnery in Korea, maintaining a capacity of roughly 260 bhikkhunis, or Buddhist nuns, who practice Buddhism in a four-year term. But, thanks to its magnificence and lush forest, Unmunsan Mountain, located on the southernmost part of Taebaek Mountain range, has become a favorite spot for many tourists.
