Yukjijangsa Temple has a long history of a thousand years and three lakes in the forest. Participants can experience the effect of “phytoncide” from the forest and “negative ion” and “far-infrared radiation” emitted from jade stones in the temple even for a short time. Yukjijangsa Temple stay offers programs through which participants can experience the health vision of the mountain temple that has been transmitted over the past 1,700 years.

Health experience type

Simply enjoying comfortable rest is not genuine rest. Genuine rest comes by blocking worldly desires or worries that give stress, letting go of doubts, or deserting self-pride and stupidity. By taking that kind of rest, you can engage in normal activities and prevent all kinds of diseases. Yukjijangsa’s health experience-type temple stay offers a way to throw away obsession that causes stressed-out mind and body and to recharge with energy through genuine rest. Most of all, participants can experience a feeling of happiness when serotonin, a happy substance, is activated through the health experience-type programs.
