Nice man.

Which are your favorite mountain / temple days out in Korea?

I'd have to go with Beomosa in Busan as the natural scenery is just stunning.

Mal-san in Cheolla-nam do just becasue the temple there is the prettiest thing I have ever seen in Korea.

And of course no time in Korea is complete without having experienced Bulguksa and the Seokorham in Gyeongju.
If you think you can or can't do a thing - you are probably right.

Very well done. Just make sure to get (or lie that you did and say it on your site) permission from the monks before taking pics of a buddha's head *inside* a temple.

I'm curious - do you take requests? I've only been to a few Buddhist temples here in Korea but I've noticed clusters of small stacks of rocks near the temples. At one temple I watched a little boy and his mother collect rocks on the ground to create their own. Do you know the significance of this ritual? I'd be really interested to read about it.

I'm very happy to have found your blog! I've been planning to study architecture in my time off from work while in Korea, so its great to have all of this information!

I am going to be living in Bucheon, were would you suggest I try to visit first? should I go to Changdeokgung Palace? Is there a fee to visit?

Not sure why noone else has said it yet but many foreigners find Korean temples to be the same.

Have you posted about the 3 'Enlightened' temples of the Silla dynasty - Haeinsa near Hapcheon and Hapcheon Dam are on the Nakdong River,  Beomeosa (Dongnae, Busan quite close to Nopo-dong Express Bus Terminal) and Bulguksa (nestled away west of Daegu in Kyoungnam-do)?

You might do a piece on Pal-goong mountain and the large stone Buddha head found at the top.


Haeinsa is certainly my fave with the Tripitaka museum nearby with all of stored scrolls.  Makes a nice summer or Chuseok getaway as there is also water sports and rafting nearby.

I enjoyed Haeinsa as it is a working temple, with monks drumming, meditating and carrying artefacts around throughout the time I was there. The complex is also quite large with a number of buildings on site and around it.

Worth a look for even the culture-phobe.

This is an incredible resource for those of us who want more background on temples. Thanks for going to such measures to make them easy for people to understand (history, directions, paintings, etc).  8)
