  • 2015-02-20 00:00:00+00:00
This temple overlooking the sea may be out of the way, but it’s still worth a visit. I bet it looks even more amazing during the winter when snow’s falling and covering everything from the roof to the ground.
  • 2014-11-14 00:00:00+00:00
Incredibly, Haedong Yonggungsa Temple is free to enter. It’s a gorgeous temple, perched on seaside boulders overlooking the azure waters of the East Sea, and is well worth the longish bus ride.

This is an important temple of the Tibetan Gelu sect and very famous. The interior is pretty cramp given the size and crowd. It's worthwhile to visit if you hire a guide and interested with the history, and photography of the interior and statues are not allowed. 古庙都是地方小,没啥照明,酥油灯,壁画,神像。这是格鲁派的寺庙,也有佛祖的神像。没人讲解就很快逛完,有讲解也听不了那么多。

出了寺走上八角街,圍著大昭寺轉經的藏民從四面八方聚集而來,最後匯成一股強大的人流,浩浩蕩蕩。 那種壯觀的場面令人震撼,或許只有親眼目睹,才可能會被這樣的虔誠和執著所感動。

Michizane was especially fond of ume (Asian plum) trees, and there are as many as 6000 of them on the grounds of Dazaifu Tenman-gū. One particular tree, the Tobiume “flying plum tree”, stands to the right of the honden main shrine hall – legend has it that Michizane yearned so much for this tree that it uprooted itself from Kyoto and flew to Dazaifu Tenman-gū. When we visited the ume trees were starting to come into full bloom, their white and pink flowers signalling the welcome arrival of spring.

Believe it or not, this is a real place – Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple, is a Buddhist temple in Thailand that looks like it was placed on earth by a god. Though it may have involved divine inspiration, it was in fact designed by a man. Chalermchai Kositpipat, a Thai artist, designed the temple in 1997.

With a group of around 11 participants it was a good opportunity to talk to the monks about their life in the temple as well, and in the evening we had a tea ceremony with one of the monks where all of us got to ask as many questions as we wanted.
  • 2012-10-11 00:00:00+00:00
The evening ceremony itself involves the entire community gathering in the main hall and chanting to a statue of Buddha. Like regular program participants, Vicky and I were allowed to stand side by side with the monks and bow with them as they chant. Not as easy as it sounds (in fact, a monk had to come over to us and tell us we were facing the wrong way). Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m doing it the justice it deserves, but definitely it was extremely interesting and quite unforgettable.

Sanbangsan Mountain 산방산, 山房山 Attraction

218-10, Sanbang-ro, Andeok-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do 제주특별자치도 서귀포시 안덕면 산방로 218-10 (안덕면)

The Sanbangsa Temple and also the Bomunsa Temple, which holds the relics of Buddha, are also located on the mountain. Walk along the stone-steps between the two temples and you will find the Sanbanggulsa Grotto. A signal beacon called ‘Yeondae’ in Korean stands at the roadside in front of the mountain, which, in the past, used to fire and smoke to relay urgent messages. Regarding function, it is similar to the more well-known ‘Bongsudae’ signal beacons; but ‘Yeondae’ beacons were built around hilly or coastal areas while ‘Bongsudae’ beacons were built on mountain tops. During the daytime, smoke was used to send warning signals, while fire was used at night.

Anyway, since I can’t climb Sanbangsan, I might as well visit this temple. Like the few temples I’d visited in Korea, the temple has an open concept with several buildings like the one below and Buddhist statues here and there.
