Located deep in the mountains of southeast Korea Haeinsa Temple is one of Korea’s three largest Buddhist monasteries, one of the “Three Jewels,” as Korean Buddhists prefer to call them.
A UNSECO World Heritage Site, the compound is home to the Tripitaka Koreana — the Palman Daejanggyeong in Korean — a 13th century collection of woodblock carvings of the Buddhist scriptures and the oldest and most complete edition of the Buddhist canon in Chinese characters. For centuries, the monastery has been the scholastic center of Korean Buddhism, preserving the traditional of scriptural studies through the generations.
Here you see a part of the roof and the beautiful autumn colours of the surrounding trees.
