The Top-7 Buddhist Temples of South Korea
These are the six Buddhist monasteries of the Republic of Korea that
I have judged to be the most-worth-visiting, also among the largest
and most religiously-important in the entire nation, and most-scenic,
with the most amazing profound treasures to view.  Friends of mine
that are also deeply into Korea's temples tend to agree with this.

These are the six that I most recommend for any pilgrim to visit!!

They are listed in alphabetical order by the Romanized temple-name;
 no preference is indicated, I consider these 7 all equally "best".
