Go Buddha, It’s Your Birthday!

This post is way overdue, but I had an awesome time on Buddha’s Birthday!

Or as you can see in Korean, 부처님오신날. It’s a great day to go visit a temple and pray for luck in the next year!

I went to Bongwonsa which is in my neighborhood of Sinchon.

They’re the best sight to see at a temple.
