Spring Blossoms at Tongdosa


It is that time of the year again. Blossom time! While it is still a bit early you can still head out and get the jump on some prime locations. There are a few things that I will run over through this quick tour of my most recent trip to Tongdosa.

Hello Again Everyone!!

The last time I visited Seochukam Hermitage, at Tongdosa Temple, in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do, it was about two years ago and there was snow on the ground. This time, I went during the summer months, which made for quite the nice contrast. Also, I was extremely impressed by the colourful interior of the plainly decorated exterior walls of the main hall. Have a look and see what I mean.

Hello Again Everyone!!

With all the positive feedback about the first video from Buddha's birthday, I thought I would continue with regular video postings of temples and hermitages from all around Korea. While I'm certainly no professional, I hope you find them insightful and enjoyable.

This video is from Baekunam Hermitage, near Tongdosa Temple, in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do. It's one of the most picturesque hermitages on the temple grounds. And hopefully this video helps reveal the well hidden beauty of this hermitage on the side of Mt. Yeongchuisan.

Buddha’s Birthday Review

I love this time of year. I am not Buddhist but I do feel a great sense of calm when I am at temples, but sadly depending on the time you go, calm might not be achieved. However, this year I had a really great experience and even a personal tour of Junggwangsa.

Hello Again Everyone!!

This year, I decided to head over to my favourite temple in all of Korea for Buddha's Birthday, which just so happens to be Tongdosa Temple. Here's a unique look at one of Korea's most famous temples during the Buddha's birthday celebrations.
