[Experience in Korea #2] Naksansa

Last summer, I went to Naksansa with my family.
Naksansa is a korean Buddhist temple which is located in Yangyang, Gawngwon Province.

Unfortunately, most of the temple has been burned out in April, 2005. The construction to restore the temple buildings is still in process, and it looks like 1 more year would be needed to complete it.

Beside the sad mishap, the temple is located near the East Sea (not Sea of Japan!), which creates a composure of wind, and a beautiful view.

Here are some of the pictures that I have take from the trip.

Great place to see the fantastic sea!

I am proud of this picture (personally of course! :))
