Seokguran in Gyeongju

We climbed many stairs today with the ultimate goal of seeing Seokguram Bonjonbul.  This is a UNESCO World Heritage site and we saw many national treasures today. It is known as one of the most brilliant pieces of cultural heritage.  This incredibly large buddha, created in white granite was being restored when we viewed it, so we did not see it properly, but it was impressive none the less. No pictures please! (Of Buddha himself that is).

We also saw the grotto, the three story stone pagoda and enjoyed the peaceful stroll to the top of the mountain.  Such a peaceful morning!
