Buddhist Temple with Yang Suk Soon

In addition to hiking, I visited this Buddhist temple with Yang Suk Soon and her husband this day. Both were eager to show me around the vibrant community of Buddhist followers at Changwon's large, active temple nestled in the foothills South East of town. Monks played music and many people came to see and enjoy the blooming flowers.

Most Buddhist temples in Korea boast striking vibrant colors, with deep reds, blues, and greens woven into an intricate woodwork below a top heavy roof with round red tiles.
