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.
On our way…
Welcomed by all of these gorgeous lanterns!
They’re the best sight to see at a temple.
Just outside the temple.
People enjoying … including some monks!
The temple itself!
Lighting candles for prayer.
I love the design on these doors. Always shocks and amazes me. How gorgeous is that!?
A quite old temple.
Without a paint job, it would look more like this.
Free lunch provided by the temple. Spicy bibimbab!
And many golden statues in the cafeteria!
So much fun! One of my favorite days of the year always! ❤
