Temple in Seoul (Autumn)

Visted Seoul in Autumn (end Oct ) and was pleasantly surprised by the many Chrysanthemum displays at the Buddhist temples.

The creative display attracted many visitors to the temples and the atmosphere was vibrant and lively. My most memorable piece was a tree made of Chrysanthemum!

However, the inner sanctum of the temple’s prayer hall remains dignify and quiet. Devotees were meditating and reciting sutra quietly.

My most memorable sight was witnessing devotees showing extreme respect to a Buddha Sculpture that appears cartoonish to me. It taught me not to be sooooo judgemental there and then. Thank you, my fellow Korean Buddhist brothers and sisters.

So if you ever visit Seoul in Autumn, do keep a look out for Chrysanthemum displays.
