The Taejongdae Hydrangea Festival has been canceled this year.

Busan’s Yeongdo-gu office and the promotion committee canceled the Taejongdae Hydrangea Festival, scheduled to start next week, due to the prolonged COVID-19 crisis and concerns of group infections.

Since 2006, the festival has attracted numerous visitors to its violet and pink-hued hydrangea in full bloom all over the temple grounds.

About 5,000 different hydrangeas in 40 varieties come from around the world.

Last year the festival attracted around 110,000 guests.
