Korean buddhist temples

recommendation by dyii

Buddhist was the national religion until the 13th century, before confucianism was introduced. However, it has been one of the most popular religion with shamanism, and is still the second biggest religion in Korea. You can find buddest temples all over the country very easily, and you can stop by any temple to take a look even though you are not a buddhist.
This temple is the one we visited in Iksan. The monk introduced the story about the sculpture and the history of the temple very kindly.
