PKNU Cultural Exchange – 13.1.2012 (Part 1)

March 2nd, 2012 · 2 Surrendered

The long awaited day is here! We went to Gyeongju. It was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD).

Left: Some of the snacks given to us for the road trip.
Right: Love the view! On the way…


Bulguksa Temple is the head temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism in the North Gyeongsang province in South Korea.


Frozen lake at the temple.


Toilets for gentleman and lady.


Another frozen lake.


Statues at one of the entrances. Scary looking!


It’s winter, even the river and stream were frozen.


Heading to the main building. To be continued…

    Hi Irene, wow! I love these pics. Well taken too. Bet it was quite chilly too.
    I have never been to these places.
    When I was there, strictly business. Arrive, business, back to hotel, next day return home.

    So? You had kin chi? I love it.
    Have fun.
    Lee.
