Temple Exchange: Korea

Global Temple Conference


Often referred to as the "Land of the Morning Calm," Korea is located at a major crossroad of northeast Asia and is home to nearly 45 million people. Grounded in ancient Confucianism, yet one of the most digitally-connected countries in the world, Korea offers a dynamic cultural mix of long-standing tradition and modern innovation.

Korea's capital city, Seoul, is where this juxtaposition is felt most keenly. Dotted with towering skyscrapers and glitzy shopping malls, the city is also home to serene Buddhist temples and beautifully crafted gardens. Seoul's fast-paced and bustling lifestyle combined with Koreans' enthusiastic interest in western culture provide a unique enviroment for students interested in studying there.
