Korean Beliefs

Buddhist Temple

Buddhism is the most prominent religion across the two Koreas, although in South Korea Christianity claims a slightly larger number of followers. In both countries there are minorities who adhere to Confucianism and shamanism. There also exists a specifically Korean faith called Chondogyo, or the Religion of the Heavenly Way, which sprang into being during the nineteenth century as a reaction against the influence of Christianity.

The McKinley Internet Yellow Pages recommends a 4-star Web site, Facets of Religion. For still more religious connections, see the McKinley Magellan Internet Guide.
