Lanterns at Jogyesa Temple (조계사)

Jogyesa 201914
Unlike most Buddhist temples which are nestled in the mountains, Jogyesa (조계사) is situated right in the heart of downtown Seoul. It is the city’s largest Buddhist temple and the center of Zen Buddhism in South Korea. It’s amazing how the city masterfully balances rapid urbanization with revered cultural and religious traditions. 🙏❤️ 🇰🇷
