Taste of Coex
Experience communion with Buddhism and cleanse your soul at Bongeunsa in Seoul, which is located in front of the Grand Ballroom of COEX.
The temple is home to 3,479 Buddhist scriptures of 13 types, including the works of Kim Jeong-hee. The Buddhist ceremony called Jeongdaebulsa is held on the ninth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, where monks march carrying the scriptures on their heads and recite the Beopseongge (Buddhist rites).
Mood lighting gently fills the fantastic 13-meter-high shelves. Especially, the first floor offers an independent space where you can view the sunken space on the first basement level and relax while reading a book. There is a variety of cultural events on the theme of books such as artist talk shows and poetry recitals where you can meet with authors, see lectures, and take in book concerts with music.
