Daegu Things to Do: 15 reviews and 32 photos

Donghwasa was found in the 5th century. It has since been rebuilt many times. During the Japanese invasion it was used by the monks as a headquarters.
During Chuseok the main temple grounds are busy with children playing traditional games. It is also decorated with many colourful lanterns.
The main attraction Tong-il Daebul is a 33m high medicinal Budha. The Budha is surrounded by an amphitheatre. The amphitheatre has many carvings of Budhas and Warriors. It is magnificent and has a truly beautiful view down the mountain.
If you like a challenge have a go at throwing some coins into the pond. There is a stone hole at the bottom good luck.

Cost W 2500. Free if you come in from the top of Palgongsan.
