Hwaunsa is a branch temple of the second diocese of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. It is located at the foot of Myeokjosan Mountain in Samga-dong, Yongin, Gyeonggi-do and is a perfect temple for practicing asceticism while surrounded by nature. Hwaunsa also refers to a temple near Meju Valley, and the name Hwaun, meaning “Flower clouds,” is based on a legendary story claiming that flower clouds blossomed from the place where Buddha was teaching on the Vulture Peak assembly.
