Songgwangsa Temple In Suncheon

in travel •  10 months ago

Each temple has it’s own meaning and symbol in Korean Buddhism.

There are tri gem (triratna) in Buddhism, Buddha, Teachings and monk, which consist of Buddhism.

Songgwangsa temple have been represented “Monks” among triratna in Korean Buudhism.

Monk Beopjeong who I introduced you as one of the most prominent master in Korean society, became a monk in this temple.

I had visited this temple several times until now.
When I got to the temple this time, it began to rain.

When I arrived at the temple, the large size of main entrance gate waited for me



Passing through the main entrance gate, I walked along the stream to the temple.




The scenery along the stream was so awesome.

The atmosphere the rain made seemed to make me feel comfortable.
And the fog made the scenery mysterious.


I felt calm and tranquility while walking to the temple.

On the way to the temple, I took several scenes as below.




Finally I arrived at the temple.

It looks like a very long way to the temple and I don't see a lot of people going in there. I guess temple should really be a quiet and peaceful place.

looks like an adventure and a great escape from the city life, a time to relax and rejuvinate as you learn from the great monks, love the scenery too, nature make me feel relaxed

Absolutely stunning! How wonderful is the architecture!

who made these sculptural groups? Your job? :-)

I can't wait for the day that I'm able to visit there and see all the great Korean Buddhist Temples. The natural surroundings are magnificent. Wow!


welcome anytime, dude

I love the scenery, the beautiful nature makes me feel relaxed. @slowwalker


wow very nice photography

it looks really great

What I really admire in most temples is the architectural design and the location it is built in.


Yes you are right

These are such lovely pics, I regret not visiting more temples during my travels.

The Gate at the Entrance is indeed Grand :)
The view of the lake made it even more amazing

The fog made it like it was winter ;)

The natural beauty of the Temple is indeed very fascinating.


Thank you

You takes pictures very well.
Sometimes I miss the rice I eat at the temple.

What beautiful photos, seeing them allows me to transport myself to that beautiful place, those trees, that impeccable architecture, I love these photos.
now it would be a pleasure for you to see my photos, I am a beginner in the field, so I would love your opinion on my work.

'Triratna' is a Sanskrit word which means 3 Gems. Buddhism amidst the beautiful surroundings will truly give you a peace of mind.

Photos very Beautiful, Super photos, thanks

absolutely breathtaking, you have an amazing eye for shots!

My granny once told me about the temple
Songgwangsa Temple is located on the west side of Jogyesan Mountain, and is a very famous temple in Korea with many monks1954563_image2_1.jpg

These photos are absolute beauty. I do wish you could’ve posted more pics of the temple itself though, as ancient buildings in Asian countries can be the most beautiful ever constructed. Nevertheless gorgeous photos & an insightful post overall.

Good post. I love it.

What a nice way to travel so far and feel it so close! Thanks a a lot @slowwalker

Your pictures are beautiful, I'm excited to read more of your stuff. I will mostly be posting of travel also :)

beautiful, nice place^^

the nature images remind me of parts of north Carolina i have visited years ago they had some of the most beautiful rivers and forest areas i had ever seen from a guy that never got to venture outside of Florida and some parts of Georgia for the majority of my life.
the large contrast of jutting and smooth rocks with beds of leaves and lush colorful trees is 1 of the things i remember most. some parts of Kentucky namely the mammoth cave areas also had some similar lovely nature scenes.
i hope that some day i can visit many other places with diverse natural sceneries as i am absolutely an environmental artist at heart and nature calls me to witness its ever changing landscapes.

Very large gate! It was really beautifully designed.

I absolutely agree with you, the scenery along the stream was so awesome indeed. The green trees and the stream look refreshing… The fog makes the scenery looks so cool…. Really beautiful nature! You took great photos of them. ;)

I am reading your newest posts. You have introduced many places in Korea! Thank you for such a good post about a lot of things of Korea :D I hope to see more of them. Followed and Upvoted!

Korea is my dream destination.

Very lovely photo and nice peaceful place. Why do they put these small stones on top of each other?


Someone seemed to make the stone tower


OK! I see them in some photos related to meditation or yoga, so I thought it be a ritual. Thank you :)

Great photo. The gates to the temple are really huge. Good luck to you and Love.

Отличные фото. Врата в храм по- настоящему огромны. Удачи Вам и Любви.

Your post is rich ,wonderful photos
