Finding a Slice of Korea in Silang Cavite: My Experience at the Korean Temple

3 minutes read

Attention travel enthusiasts and fans of Korean dramas! I have good news if you’re like me and don’t yet have the budget to travel. I just discovered about a hidden gem that will let you experience Korea on a budget. I recently found a hidden gem that would give you a taste of Korea without breaking the bank. Just a little more than an hour from PITX (Paranaque Integrated Terminal Exchange) to the Korean Temple in Silang Cavite, which is situated in Pooc II in Lumbini Institure. At PITX 2F Gate 2, look for a bus heading to Tagaytay via Emilio Aguinaldo Highway. Fare is P82.

The temple’s dreamlike and tranquil atmosphere astounded me the moment I stepped inside. I had a strong sense of being in a Korean environment, and the location was very Instagrammable. It’s not a tourist spot but a sacred place; the temple is truly the Manila Buddhist Meditation Center. We must always keep in mind to respect the rules and regulations, keep quiet, and avoid making noise.

To get to the temple, take a bus headed to Tagaytay and get off at Estrella Hospital, which is close to Total Gas Station and 711 and there’s an express tricycle terminal for P100. If you’re not in a hurry and have an ample time, you can wait and save money by walking to the jeepney terminal close to Silang Central School, where a one-way price only costs P20. Travel time to the temple is just 13minutes away.

The area is filled with statues and trees that contribute to the tranquility of the area as you explore it. Keep in mind that visitors cannot enter the hall. The Main Hall is still the main draw because of its exquisite architecture and design, which makes it similar to most Korean temples.

Don’t stress if you’re worried about getting the ideal selfie. I have no trouble at all taking shots because of my Oppo Band B1.

Spent almost 2 hours sitting and relaxing. We should always be respectful of the laws and norms because it’s important to remember that this is a sacred place. Everyone who wishes to visit is welcome, and there is no entrance fee. It’s a wonderful chance to try something new and discover more about Korean tradition and religion.

Overall, I had a wonderful time touring the Korean Temple in Silang Cavite. I got to see a little bit of Korea and learn about their lovely religion and culture. To anyone looking to get away from the hectic city life and experience something new, I heartily recommend it. Take advantage of your travel to Korea to perfect your pose and grin in preparation for your trip there.
