Sects and the City

bongeunsa steps cars modern buildings

Bongeunsa (see earlier post) – the Buddhist temple right in the middle of one of the most modern parts of Seoul. As a backdrop to the scene, you can see some of the skyscrapers surrounding this beautiful temple. In the picture is one of the entrances to the temple; in this case a set of stone steps leading up from a parking area. Unfortunately the sense of perspective which creates an almost tangible split between the old and the new as you stand gazing upon this scene is lost to the third dimension not present in the only two dimensions of this picture.
