Temple art detail. I would love to know which Buddhist story this comes from...
During the rainy season in Korea last year, I ventured to Haeinsa Temple with my friend Paul. The miserable rainy weather here reminded me of this trip. Despite the cloudy skies and constant, unpleasant drizzle, it was a pleasant trip to one of my favorite temples.
The Tripitaka Koreana and the reason for this temple's fame. It's the print panels for a really old and awesome Buddhist text, preserved in traditional wood structures.
I had an epiphany walking this maze back in March 2008 when I came here with another friend.
